    Bleenie duck is officially broody, she's on a big nest of eggs, most Muscovy, some Muscovy/Pekin. She's been on her nest for a steady 5 days/nights, is doing the squeek thing at me and the other ducks and all ruffled up. This morning she came out for a bit to eat and drink and I see her caruncles are pale as well. I started adding dry dog food to her feed dish, she won't touch the dry cat food. I'm so excited for my darling Bleenie Girl!!!

    Congratulations Girls!!!
    I'm so excited for Bleenie Duck...she's only 7 months old so I was surprised to see her go broody. She built a beautiful nest and even though it's a two duck nesting box she kicked Scrappy my Pekin out of it when she decided to go broody LOL I carried a handful of catfood out there and she laid on her nest and ate it out of my hand..I don't want her getting run down in there. She looks so regal on that nest! I'll take a photo of her on it tomorrow.
