Have a Ducky Day!

This is our Mama Mallard.  She decided to build a nest and lay her eggs in our front yard flowerbed.  We've only seen her off the nest once in the past five days.  We are only four houses and a street from the lake.  I guess there is less competition for nesting in my yard. :)  I will keep all of you updated.  Until then, have a ducky day!

We were spraying her with the hose. LOL



Isn't she pretty!

She is a very beautiful girl. It looks like she was enjoying the cool shower, she even said thank you. It's going to be exciting when the eggs hatch, can't wait to see the photos.

She is so cute! It will be such fun watching her raise a family there! Is she a single mom or is the papa around the area, too?
Have a nice Monday!

How sweet she is! I can't wait to see more updates on her and her little ducklings. :)

How fun to have her and her nest right there in your front yard. Didn't the spray from the hose scare her off at all? She seems to be enjoying it in the pictures.

How fun! Wonder how long the wait is for ducks? Chickens are 21 days - I'd imagine it wouldn't be too much different.
