New Poultry

I told you about our poultry trading the other day. Well here are the picture finally! They are all so cute. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

First we have the Coturnix Quail. We got five hens and two cocks. They make the cutest sounds and fly around like crazy little birds when they play. :) I'll have to get a video of that someday.

I wish the next two hadn't turned out blurry because they are so cute!

Here is a video of the cutie little quails. If you listen closely you can hear them. The chicks in the same room were being kind of loud so I hope you can hear them. :)


Next we have the three Delaware hens. Our original Delawares we bought didn't have very much black in their tails so these new girls should help us get color back in our lines, as well as improving type (conformation). :)


And now we have the Muscovy ducks. We got three hens and one drake. They are the most beautiful colors! I forgot how much I love photographing ducks. I don't know what it is about them, but I love it. I'm so excited about getting these guys. We've been trying to find some Muscovy ducks for about three years now! The cool thing about this breed of duck is that they don't necessarily have to live on a pond and they also can fly up into trees to roost at night so they stay safe from predators. They are really cool ducks. :)

Anyway I am sooo happy with my new birds. :)
