Duckies in the Early Days
These super duckies are really cute! This was when they were still fuzzy little ducklings. At the time we took this photo, we only had these duckies for a few days. They are probably about a week old. The ducklings are in a little bin that we used to take them outside. We wanted to free range them, but they were too young to be unsupervised, so we would let them graze while watching closely. Why? Because of the hawks! They may be falcons, but either way, these birds can be potentially harmful. The hawks will try to pluck them from above and go on an "adventure" (Hint: "adventure" means snack time for the hawk or falcon!). Red tail hawks may also take a leg to eat, if they can't get the whole duckling. Always watch over small ducklings or chicks that are under 3 pounds!

I was inspired by my chickens and ducks to do "Ducky Comics." I have done a fundraiser for 4-H, and plan to continue doing so in the future. -Henry, 14
