Ducks, ducks, more ducks

To our friend Michaelangelo, and any others who might love ducks:

We bought seven more ducks today.

Three Pekins (the bright yellow ones), two Cayugas (the solid black ones) and two Rouens (the multi-colored ones.)

Our two Khaki Campbells look like they are months older, but they are only a week older. What a difference a week makes in the life of a duck.

But what to name them?

Well, we have nine ducks. What are there nine of? There are nine muses in Greek mythology. There are also nine circles of hell in Dante, but I think the muses are better, don't you?

So little Miss Rouen, would you like to be Calliope? Melpomene?
Miss Pekin, how about Thalia or Terpsichore?

My job will be nicknames; I can see that already.
