by anyone’s assessment other than our own, a hatching of 2 ducklings could not be called a success. we too were a wee bit disappointed with the results, but that does not make these 2 feathered friends any less perfect.
called storm and calm or day and night or duckies duckies duckies duckies duckies these are definitely the most doted upon ducks in the universe right now.
with a brooder project finally complete, their home for the next weeks is a lovely one.
best friends, a new house, two is good.

yesterday, after waiting 26 days, when me and mom took our duck eggs off the turner and onto the wire rack, we noticed a peck hole in one egg and heard some peeps. by afternoon a tiny web footed duckling was out. next morning, william comes running into my room shouting “there is a new duckling, come look!”
i went to look and sure enough there was another black duckling.hopefully there will be more over the next few days. meanwhile, i will be happily watching my two new ducks.
