My pair of white call ducks has 7 lil babies now.
My lil white call duck hen went broody on 9 eggs and all but two hatched today!!!! From what I could tell one died a few days before hatching and the other one died while hatching (lil baby just couldn't make it out
). Anyway the mommy and babies are doing great and they are so adorable!!!!
The hen really does not like it when I get close, but I just can't stay away!!

Here are some pics

Thanks
This is my 2nd time letting a broody duck hatch out her own eggs (1st was with a lil mallard hen and only one made it
) They do really make a great family together
sometimes it is like she has the glow of mother hood or something
I can't get over how cut lil ducklings are, I wise they would stay like that forever!!
