Nice pictures and your birds look to be in very good condition! It's fun to give them treats and have them tame like that... Are those ducks in the pictures Mandarins?

Hello,
Yes the ducks are Mandarins. I also feed them with a recipes that I got from Resolution on GBWF forum (and it works) to give them better feathers, etc.

The camera is a Lumix (Panasonic) DMC-F27, 12x optical zoom (useful with Mandarins  s020), lens : 35 mm equiv.

Thanks for the nice comments!

The females are looking great, the males are in molting and two of them, for a reason that I don't know, have never been really nice... But anyway, I love my mandarins and I'm proud to keep them as I do.

Nice pictures lad !
