My favourite duckling!

on February 28, 2014

Okay, so I wasn’t going to name the ducklings but I can’t help myself now because they are surviving so well AND chasing me everywhere. They somehow know that my voice means lettuce or bread and they pretty much attack me every time I step out the door.

‘Michael Jackson’ is the dancing duckling and, before today, I thought the twins were identical until I noticed that one had a a lot of freckles (‘Freckle’) and the other one had more of a mish-mash of colouring and personality and beauty, so I have called her ‘Misha’.



I know I shouldn’t have favourites and of course I love Michael Jackson and Freckle and Misha equally but let’s just say that for this week I am quacking with Misha!

Misha is named after someone with a better name – and this is sent with a love quack to her!

    Bless that little Misha! She’s a feisty growing ball of bill and feathers, squawking her Hello’s, and Where’s the Lettuce?! May her noisy voice and eager beauty bring smiles to your face and your heart in this trying time. With thoughts of you, Gina
