    One of our neighbors rescued a whole bunch of animals from a mini farm that was starving them, along with the livestock the got 2 ducks. A Pekin drake & a Rouen hen. After they got them home the Rouen started laying & building a nest and after a while she came out of the nest with about 15 little babies! [​IMG]

    They're very new to ducks so they only want to keep 2 of the babies and found someone to take a few more, for their autistic daughter. I told them i had room in my brooder for any extras they had. We got a call today and went and picked up 5 cute little babies [​IMG] Theyre all Rouen colored but soo cute, momma was really pretty too. It looks like there's 2 girls & 3 boys in the bunch but i am going to keep them until theyre grown anyway. I know someone that will take a drake, she has pet ducks & i will try to find good pet homes for any other boys later on.

    Here they are all snuggled in with the Scovy babies [​IMG]

    The brooder is gettign a little crowded so i may have to rehome some of the boys soon..still not sure though.
