Spring chicks and ducks

About a week ago the boys bought 8 ducks from Tractor Supply and a few more chicks.Above is Mikes little duck.When he picked this duck out it was the smallest and pretty weak.He was attached at first sight.The cashier wanted him not to take it and insisted on him putting it back.She even tried to get me too when he was not looking.So I called Mike over and told him what she said,and that she didn't think he was gonna make it and she wanted him to leave him.Mike said, No I want him.I told him he would get upset if it didn't make it. Then asked him if he was sure he wanted to chance it?He said yes he was gonna help this lil guy and try to get him better.The cashier told Mike he was one strong minded boy and she thought alot of him to take this sick duck and help him.He smiled at her.So we left with the little black and yellow duck.After one night home with TLC from Mikey the ducky was doing great.The big yellow one is Marcus's duck.All are doing wonderful and growing bigger by the day.

Hi Jen,
You can tell Mikey I think he's great ( as I sit here with tears in my eyes). Let me know how his lil duck is doing.
Bobby told me he got to see the ducks his last visit. I hope to get to come see them before they get bigger.
Talk soon,
Love Mickey
