here's a look at how they've been growing...
|black duckling on day one, still a bit wet from the hatch|
|fluffy, safe, and warm 2-3 days after hatch|
|5 days old exploring a bit but staying close to each other and to mama|
|1 week old and practicing good runner duck posture|
|not quite as tall as mama|
|at 2 weeks they've lost much of their roundness...necks and bills noticeably lengthened|
|by 3 weeks old body and head shape look a lot like the adults and they are much more aware of their surroundings...keeping an eye on a passing turkey vulture|
|about 3 1/2 weeks (2 days ago) a few tail feathers starting to emerge|
|a few hours ago|
can't wait to see how they look in the morning.
