|~ Monday & Tuesday grooming ~|
I have bins out in the yard for them to always have a source of water & most mornings, they will jump in & splash around.
Monday & Tuesday are just over 3 weeks old & starting to look a bit scraggly. They are growing their first set of feathers, so are constantly grooming themselves. Right now their tail feathers haven't popped out much, so they have these funny short little back sides...

I'm sure we'll see them in the house in a few days & I recall from last year they actually will start showing up in the fridge & once I had one in my coffee cup!
Thankfully ducks are clean. They don't smell like dirty birds & I know I can usually pick them up & not worry about having mud stains remain on my clothes... Of course, it has been a dry spring, so who knows what will happen when the rains return!
