We are up to 20 ducklings with 3 more nests being set on! I never thought my ducks would hatch this many babies.
The mama of this nest hatched 11 eggs!!! She is just a little thing, so I took 4 of the ducklings and we will raise them in a brooder under a heat lamp. I was concerned that she wouldn’t be able to keep them all warm at night.
My son is having a blast with them.
I helped him set up a cozy little brooder for them. We used some wool for a bed and they enjoy snuggling on it. The fifth duckling is from another nest where he was the only one that hatched. Poor little guy needed some brothers and sisters to hang out with.
It was such a nice day today, we took them outside and they had fun putting everything in their mouth!
The really fun thing is to peep at them and have them follow you!
These are the little guys that hatched out earlier in the week.
Have a good day!
