Mocha's Babies

Meadow was very curious as soon as we could hear the ducklings cheeping under the steps and kept sticking her head under :D
Mama and one-day-old ducklings. She is NOT happy with us for caging her.Week-old cuties. Ducklings are so adorable :)
Here she is looking for a way out of her new pen. Poor mama, doesn't realize we are trying to keep her babies safe.
She can fly out the one uncovered corner of the pen, which she does occasionally. But, of course, she always comes back to her babies before long. She is very protective, she makes a sort of honking sound very unlike her usual soft chirp if you get too close. Once when I grabbed one of her babies to move them out of the cage she came at me hissing and stomping her feet.

When they get a little bigger, can I have a duck and a chicken to aid in making a turducken?

Matt, you and Josh can collaberate. He plans on finding some live dinosaur dna when he's a grown-up and injecting it into various eggs. First an alligator egg in the hopes of hatching a live dinosaur. Then into other kinds of eggs to make monsters.

That is great! I love the imagination. Has he seen Jurassic Park?
A turducken is actually a cullinary creation. You take a chicken, debone it, roll it up, stuff it in a deboned duck, and stuff all that in a partially deboned turkey. MMMMMMMMMM

No, he's not seen Jurassic Park, but he's got the concept down, lol.

Have you eaten turducken before? Not so sure it sounds all that tasty. I guess it depends on the method of cooking and seasoning though...

Thanks for visiting my blog and sharing ideas. You are right about talking to God all day. What a blessing that we can do that! And I love the duck photos. :)

Nope, never tasted one, but with enough seasonings, I'm sure it'll be tasty. I know I like chicken and turkey, duck I only had once and it was SUPER rich and not super tasty, but I know there are different ways of preparing it so....
