Call mom hatched 100%

Our call had better luck than me. I am so glad that she decided to set this year. She will be setting all her own next year! She has 4 babies.

One was a surprise as it is colored kind of a blue color. All of the others are yellow, so most likely white. The drake is white. The mate our duck  had when she came here was an apricot silver, so I am wondering if that is what is in her genes as well. She is white with only a touch of color.

It will be fun to see what it's mature color will be.

These ducklings are all characters. Jumping high & far, zipping around like they are in a race with the roadrunner, nibbling at everything, even trying to bite my fingers & arm. I didn't realize how active call babies would be.

I would like to post a picture as I know you folks would like to see them. I want guesses as to mature color of the colored one, just for fun. What do I use for posting pictures now? What seems to be the best?

The Blue one is probably Blue Fawn. Pretty colour with bluish backs and lighter brown brown parts.

Re: Call mom hatched 100%

You are correct RavenHeart, I was one who had mentioned another image hosting site....  it is 

postimage.org  and very user friendly and much quicker than photobucket also free to use and archives are indefinite.

There's another one too Imgbb. It's free, simple and gives you the full img code to paste directly into ACE without needing to click on any buttons. It's what I use.

Okay...it worked!

This morning we found one of the ducklings stuck in an awkward spot that it could not get out of. It died before we could rescue it. Mom was beside herself with panic. It was one of the yellow ones. :crying: We are down to 3 little ones in that space. We fixed this previously unknown issue and it should not pose any further risk. Hopefully nobody else finds such a spot. All of the others are playing and doing well.
