In April 2008 I started with three runner ducklings from the local ranch store.
They were two fawn and whites and a chocolate.
The fawn and whites both turned out to be drakes, so I found two more hens
to add to the flock, a Khaki Campbell and a Welsh Harlequin.
Here is Bridgett, my first Welsh Harlequin Duck (click on pics to enlarge).

My chocolate runner Aretha, hatched a clutch of ducklings in May 2009!

Here is Aretha with the first two ducklings that hatched.



She hatched eleven ducklings, and then we added two
Welsh Harlequins ducklings for her to foster.





Keeping thirteen ducklings warm!

Auntie Bridgett loved to be with the ducklings.

The same blue runner daughter almost grown up.




I love it when the Harlequin ducklings get their spots:
