This is our new batch of hatchlings who have been living in my bathtub.
This guy is a Pekin and who looks the most like his daddy, Goose, out of both batches of new babies.
His hatchmates are half Cayuga and half Pekin. I find it interesting how the color traits of the parents are represented in the babies. Black feet with orange stripes, black wings with white tips. I can't wait to see them grow into their adult feathers. I wonder how they'll change.
That little guy on the right is the same age as the other two but clearly is the runt of the litter. He got off to a rough start and we didn't expect him to make it but he's perked up and we're hopeful.
We're careful not to call him a runt to his face. Instead we call him a teacup duck. It makes him feel trendy.
Have a ducky weekend, all.
