More Gratuitous Duck Photos

It's time for some more duck photos, don't you think? I think so.

Buttons and Squackers have been with us for two weeks now and, yes, they're still in a makeshift brooder in our bathroom. (Don't I sound like I know what I'm doing when I use the term "brooder?" Ours is really just a big storage bin with a red heating lamp over it.)

Last week we introduced them to the bathtub and, let me tell you, they LOVE it. They primped and preened and drank and cleaned. I've never seen such thorough scrub-a-dub-dubbing.

You may have also noticed that these little guys (or girls?) are getting bigger. Here's what they looked like when we brought them home two weeks ago:

So little. They both fit in my hands at the same time. By contrast, here's what they looked like a week ago while roaming our bathroom...

That's just two weeks worth of growth, people! Also, note the bare spots on their neck and wings. I wonder if feathers are on their way?

So there you have it. More gratuitous duck photos.
