Momma Duck decided yesterday that she has had enough of being cooped up with the kid all day, so instead of making just a few short trips out, she kept BD (Baby Duck) out all day. This was the scene at Morning Wood Acres this morning when I let the ducks out. As usual, the other three couldn't wait to get out and headed straight for the pond in their usual mad rush. Shy little BD, at just 3 1/2 weeks old, took some coaxing from Momma. (The video quality isn't great, but it's my first effort.) Oh, yeah. BD's broken leg appears to be completely healed.
