My latest guests in the bathroom have been 2 rare Appleyard ducklings.
They were the 2 tiniest of a group of 7 ducklings I picked up 2 weeks ago.
They have been cleaner than the chicks were, yet much more demanding to get fed by 6 am.
The Vermont/New Hampshire Appleyard Duck Preservation Project is going well.
20 new ducklings have been added to the dwindling population and 14 more are in an incubator.
"Agnes and Ruthless" are growing and are getting better socialized.
These 2 beautiful duckings will be my frontline on the war against garden snails.
Last week I got to visit with the other 5 ducklings I had delivered to a friend.
They are much larger than mine, but hatched at the same time.
And one of them is extremely goofy.
I am really enjoying these unsual and vibrant ducklings.
If you live in NH or Vermont, have some experience raising ducks and are interested in joining the Appleyard Preservation Project, let me know.
