    My muscovy hen decided to hatch one last clutch. She's been sitting on them for a while and wouldn't let me near to count the eggs.
    Yesterday, she brought out 10 little babies [​IMG]
    There were 2 dud eggs, (nasty and rotten), one that had a full grown duckling that was dead, and one duckling that looked like he had gotten stepped on [​IMG] But the other ten are active and seem healthy!

    Here are a few pictures. Looks like I have some interesting colors this time! Any guesses on what they will look like? I tried to get a pic of each different colored duckling.

    2 like this, my last ones like this turned out to be lavender I think:

    and 2 like this, I think they might be barred because they are white with slightly gray tails, but I'm not sure. It almost looks like they have gray heads, so maybe more lavenders?

    Very adorable....every time I see ducklings, I want more. Then I remember how quickly they grow up. Well, I still want more, but it's not as tempting! [​IMG]

    One of my scovie hens just surprised me with a clutch of 15 about a week ago. I thought she was gone, flew away or a predator got her....nope she just graced me with 15 more scovies [​IMG] Having a horrible time getting rid of them too, so late in the year that no one wants them and I don't have the room to winter them [​IMG]
