Ducklings Tea Party

The ducklings are now 10 days old and have virtually doubled in size. (Short video below) They are full of life and it's adorable to watch their antics, but they poop constantly - one of the joys of being a bird ! The metabolic rate of birds is much greater than animals, and food passes through them 4 times faster. Ducklings need a constant supply of food and water at all times for proper growth rate. This lot are into everything , anything they can reach, including shoelaces and teapots !
