Our first ducklings have hatched three weeks ago! Well only two hatched and one survived. I tried finding another khaki Campbell duckling in our area for them to be friends with but unfortunately it's too late in the season. So the lonely duckling is now hanging out in our bath tub with a special stuff friend who she loves. I'm guessing its a girl to early to tell ;)

It's had taken my momma duck almost two weeks to start laying again after hatching her eggs. I'm so excited to have duck eggs for my baked goods again!

However my Rhode Island Red Rosie has been stubborn and is constantly wanting to be broody which is interesting since usually Rhode Island reds aren't known to be broody so I've been down one less chicken egg. We think we may have finally gotten her to stop being broody fingers crossed!
