K2 forms a real bond with each of her babies and can tell them apart from when they're pretty small.   [They all look the same to me - beige]  She knows which ones like the water the most.  Which ones could snuggle all day.  Which ones do not like the water thank you very much.  Which ones whistle and which ones quack the loudest.  They follow her around like puppies.

Here she is in front of a stock tank that she used as a swimming pool for them until they got big enough to go down to the creek.   Each duck got a snuggle as it came out.  She loves them. 

And they love her.

  1. K2 is adorable and so are her ducks! The boys can tell every chick and chicken apart and name all of them too, but, fortunately, they are still okay with us eating them (well, except for a couple of the older hens that they've really grown attached to). :)

  2. Love this! I was just talking with the housemate about how adorable ducks are and how much I love it when I get to come to your house and get to watch the ducks waddle and quack around the yard. :-) I love ducks too! So does this mean K2 has forgotten about the P-U-P-P-Y thing? ;-)

    1. Come to think of it, since the babies got bigger, she hasn't mentioned the p-u-p-p-y. Though it's just a matter of time until that becomes an hourly request. Again.
