Today the baby ducks from 2nd grade graduated to 3rd grade here at Chile Acres. The little ducklings weigh between 7 to 10 lbs each and I could only hold one at a time as we transferred them to the big duck enclosure. We put a ramp for the newbies to get up into the above ground pond and made a puddle for them to play in until they figure out how to get in and out of the pond.
Some of the older ducks thought the little ones were exciting to watch. Another jumped in the pond to show them how it is done. Others were a little shy and just peaked out at the new kids on the block from the safety of the little duck houses.
