The Duckies!

I just realized I never put anything up about the ducks!! Oh goodness. A little less than a week ago Mark hatched out 7 ducks. They are the cutest little things. Even cuter than the quail chicks! They were swimming at two days old. It's so amazing to me that they just did it. They didn't need to be taught or coaxed you just put them in the water and they start swimming. Cougar thinks they are the greatest. He's always asking Daddy if he can play with the duckies. He's pretty good with them, but we did have a close call the other day. He was holding them while I filled up their "swimming pool" and I think he was nervous about dropping them or their wiggling away so he was squeezing them too tight. He had one in each hand and they started, like seizing. Mark and I grabbed them quick and they are just fine now. I guess that's what you get when you've got small kids and small animals. We talked about it a little bit and Cougar is even more careful when handling the birds. He frequently says "I not squishin it", just to let you know that he's being careful and trying his best. What a sweet little boy.
