Pile of Ducklings

For the first time in two years we actually have some muscovy ducklings! Yay! They started hatching yesterday and she was sitting on three by the evening. This morning a pile of fluff had emerged. It’s a bit tricky to count, but I think there are 13 or 14 so far with a couple more eggs to hatch (or not). They are are real mixture of colours this time because she has been sitting on eggs that have come from our original white girls, Batman (who is a pied girl…) and the chocolatiers. And Orlando is the daddy, we hope we managed to keep them seperate from Linford for long enough to avoid ‘contamination’ with the furry banana. We assume the offspring of the chocolatiers are the kind of greeny looking ones!
