We Bought a Farm: They are Hatching

I wrote previously about how we decided to incubate six duck eggs here on the farm. I had a wonderful friend who had an incubator we could use, and we thought we'd give it a shot and see how it went. We put six ducks eggs in (that's all that fit) and waited and waited and about 30 days later, the first little duckling came out. We now have FOUR little baby ducks. One eggs appears to be a "dud" but we are waiting to see if the fifth egg hatches. They are currently in a little brooder out in our feed shed. You can see a video of how this looks from the last time we got baby birds in the mail!
