How did that happen Wolga?

And spot the different one in this trio! My lonely buff Orpy chick being kept company by my latest little turkey babies!

Lovely trio Tishie !
It’s a paradise duckling. A lady who I know from walking my dog on the beach gave me two tiny more dead
than alive ducklings to look after which she found in a small park. Unfortunately one died before I got home
and the other one just scraped through after a lot of TLC . It’s growing very fast now and seems to be very
content with the chicks for company. :P

It's great how a bit of company keeps them calm and happy! Doesn't matter whether they're different species. My little chick was agitated and chirping constantly until I put the new baby turkeys with it. You just hold your breath and hope that the newborns don't get pecked too much by the older one......

The little duckling snuggled in with the chicks straight away and looked very happy. It was however not
quite so happy for a day and a half when I kept it separated because it was not doing so well. I'm amazed how
quiet the duckling is. It's growing a lot faster than the chicks and starts to be very messy with the water now. :shock:

It would be great to have another paradise duckling for company. But going to Levin isn't what I would call a quick drive from where I live. :(

I may have someone driving up from Levin this weekend... should I ask him if he wanted to pick it up? not forgetting I'm Sth Akld, so you'd need to pickup from here...

South Auckland is not a problem for me if your friend would be so kind to pick it up from Levin.
Might be a bit to much to ask ?
