A friend of ours recently asked us to hatch ducks for them. They have a large pond and several of their ducks had disappeared.
We set an incubator full of duck eggs but there was a malfunction and only five ducklings hatched.
Ducklings are very cute – once they dry off. What amazes me about ducklings is how they are attracted to water from the time they hatch.
Rachel put water in their tub for them to drink but they all insisted on getting in it.
She quickly realized they needed more room so she moved them to the bathtub for a quick swim.
Now they are out with the big ducks. The first thing they did was find the mud puddle. Ducks are attracted to water wherever it is.
There’s something about ducks. I’m not allowed in feed stores in the spring. II could watch them for hours. Chickens are all right. Cute even while they’re tiny and yellow. But ducks? Now they are just awesome.
