You probably remember me mentioning that our lady duck went broody about a month ago and starting sitting on a nest of eggs. I’ve been trying to check on the nest when she takes her foray out for some grass each day. Yesterday we peeked in the nest and spotted this:
DUCKLINGS! There were 5 that had hatched and a few other eggs that were pipped (update: this morning when I checked there were 8 ducklings). In total there were 12 eggs in the nest, it will be interesting to see how many ducklings we end up with.
I can hardly wait to watch these little guys grow up, they’re so stinking cute! Ducks are definitely my favorite fowl.
