Ducklings

duckling3I can’t believe it took me so long to hatch out ducklings – they are so cute. I think turkey chicks are cute, but ducklings are the squeakiest, most gorgeous things ever – way cuter than kittens or puppies.

Out of our 18 Pekin duck eggs in the incubator 6 hatched on Tuesday. Hatching can be tiring work though, so luckily this little guy had his siblings to rest on.

I adore their little feet, and their beaks and their fluffiness

  1. Oh how sweet! And I agree with the kisses! Actually, most animals do much better with lots of kisses! Humans too!
