The Ducks are in the "House" :)
Jumbo Pekin Ducks, that is. Ds is pretty happy - he now has added some ducks to his menagerie. They will be sharing space with the chickens (boy are they looking cool these days) and bunnies until spring. It may seem a long way off, but it will take a while for him to determine exactly how he wants his animals to be kept. He is looking forward to adding his ewes soon.
The chickens are a type of bantam - not positive exactly what. They have downy type feathers and some regular ones - they are cool with their blue feet and feathers down their legs.
It will be interesting to see what types of eggs we end up with. The ducks are pretty young, but still bigger than the chickens!
