Beautiful picture Bonkersbon and Jane, lol as they are both female floozies, I am surprised Toto has nt offered them to visit his shed hahaha.

2 May, 2010

2 May, 2010

 

They like frogs to eat, Bonkers. They make a dreadful noise when they get caught - no that I'm trying to discourage you, lol.

3 May, 2010

 

Oh thanks for that Wagger ! Lol...Watching them carefully today and frogs were not on the menu !

3 May, 2010

 

If one catches a frog the others chase it 'cos they want it - that's when they REALLY squeak!

3 May, 2010

 

About to have supper Wagger...wonder why my appetite has disappeared ! Lol Wont ever be able to look at "Toad in the Hole " again !! Lol

3 May, 2010

 

LOL

3 May, 2010

 

Cute pic. :o)

4 May, 2010

 

arrrrrn great pic.. reminds me of my ducks i used to have...

4 May, 2010

 

You are so lucky BB would love to have them visit me!

4 May, 2010

 

Thanks all...they have taken over....Mrs Duck is nesting now....Shhh

4 May, 2010

 

fantastic images.

8 May, 2010

 

Thanks Sbg assuming they must be twins as they tolerate one another with a breeding female and she tolerates them .. normally two males would be in some dispute .

8 May, 2010

 

Another Fantastic photo... always maintained that there is no nature baby cuter than a little baby duck!! hope she decides soon and you have little fuzzies to watch. ( Keep an eye out for hawks.) Thanks for the chuckle! you just made my evening! lol....

10 May, 2010

 

Aww thanks Lori....so glad she has decided to nest with us....Cant wait to see the ducklings !

11 May, 2010

 

You'll have to sacrifice a few days - they grow so quickly! The first day on the water it's as if they are attached to mum by a piece of elastic but it soon gets stretched! If they stay with you until they fledge flying lessons are fun too.

13 May, 2010

 

Well Wagger...she has been sitting for a week now...very secretive...only comes off eggs once a day for a quick wash and brush up ! Lol.Looking forward to the happy event !!

13 May, 2010

 

LOL. 26-27 days incubation after last one laid. Do you know how many there are yet?

14 May, 2010

 

No Wagger...darent disturb nest but she is doing well so far ! She comes out at different times of the day..to fool the waiting males !

14 May, 2010

 

:-)

15 May, 2010

 

:o)

15 May, 2010

 

Would the males disturb her nest? Dominance issue between the twin males?
or...... : - ) ???

15 May, 2010

 

Think its more to do with the fact that they would try to mate with her again Lori...they can be very persistent ! Lol

15 May, 2010

 

Pretty smart on her part, aye? she needs a whistle.

17 May, 2010

 

LOL !
