New ducklings

Fourth of July surprise! 9 ducklings in this nest so far and still more eggs ready to hatch. A really happy treat for my visiting 3 yr old grandaughter.

Oh my gosh! Way too much cuteness!! Look how fluffy they are..and those lil duckie bills awwww.

What a totally awesome thing for your granddaughter to see. Things like that mean soo much at that age. I'm sure she'll remember it forever.
Did she ask if she could have one? LOL

Claudia thinks they ALL belong to her. LOL Yeah we're in cuteness overload out here. I found out that mama ducks will remove the healthy babies as soon as possible from the nest. The nest must be a dangerous spot. She gives the eggs a certain amount of time to hatch. If the eggs have not hatched in that given window, she will take the live ducklings and head to the lake. It scared me to see an empty nest, but when I found her leading them out into the horse field, I realized what she'd done. 4 eggs were abandoned.
