Holding steady

The duck count is holding steady this week at 3 chicks: two large from the first brood; one small from the latter brood. The large chicks are approaching full size now, and with a colouration that quite closely matches that of their mother (do young male ducks look like fully grown male ducks?). Hopefully this all means that the quad will successfully fledge three chicks this summer. Of course, the Rev. Malthus might have something to say about the longer term consequences of two ducks successfully producing three chicks ...
