The Ducklings Get their Name

At My Little Sister's Farm we like to name our animals. We don't name them each something different, how can you tell the difference between 60 yellow baby turkeys??? So we name the turkeys all one name, Frank. The Ameraurcana hens became Henrietta, Henny, and the Barred Rocks were names Penelope, Penny.

Naming the ducks was a bit harder for me. I don't know why but I didn't want to be too cliche. Daisy seemed like the best choice for a while but we finally decided on Peggie. We named them all Pegasus but like the Hennys and the Pennys we thought a good old fashioned nick name seemed ideal. So we have 25 little Peggys in our garage. I think they acually quack more now that we've named them. Oy!
