Life In Texas: Ducks!!!

Tuesday, March 20, 2012


     Every year, around this time, the feed stores in the area will sell baby birds (chicks, ducks, geese, turkeys, etc). I would always joke that I was going to buy one, but I never did.

     Then, we went to my nephew's birthday party last week. One of his presents was a baby duck. My cousin and I decided that we were going to go to the feed store and look at the ducks.

     When we got there, they only have 4 baby ducks left. My children and my cousin's son were begging for a baby duck. To make a long story short, we bought all 4 baby ducks (we couldn't leave one there all alone, could we?). The best part? We still had a 3 hour drive home.

     The ducks didn't like being in the boxes so they were loud almost the entire way home. However, once they were freed from their cardboard prisons, they were much calmer and quieter.

     The girls love their ducks, which they have named Shiloh and Cece. Cece will follow Thing 2 around like she's her mom. Shiloh doesn't care where he is, as long as he can see Cece. Scout says that they're like infants, all they do is eat, poop and cry. But overall, they're pretty cool pets.

Oh my four ducklings. I'm sure the kids are loving each one. Hope you keep us posted on how things go with them.
