Matt went outside to have his morning smoke and called me through the window screen.  I could scarcely believe my ears.  Baby ducks!  I ran outside and there they were - marching behind Mama Duck.  I decided to catch them and put them in a cage for their own safety.  What a scene - a woman in a plain flannel nightgown and clogs chasing baby ducks around the barnyard.   I got them caught and caged then watched in horror as they tried to squeeze through the wire to get back to Mama.  I would have to catch her, too, but need a bigger arrangement.  I decided to leave it to later after coffee and chores.  They are so happy in the barnyard, marching around.  It's a cool, rainy morning.  Perfect for ducks.
