James' feathered helpers

Two Khaki Campbell ducks arrived last week and they seem much friendlier than previous duck we've had.  Here they are helping James today.

I think one's a girl and one's a boy.  These are not meat ducks, they're egg layers.  I've read they lay more than 300 eggs a year.  I hope predators leave these ducks alone and one day we can have baby ducks again.  I'm tempted to name them but afraid something will surely get them if I do.

  1. I don't want to get your hopes up too high, but my three ducks (Drake, Jemima, and Rebekah) were friendly, helpful, and apparently predator proof.
    Best of luck with them!
