    My pair of white call ducks has 7 lil babies now. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] 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 [​IMG]). Anyway the mommy and babies are doing great and they are so adorable!!!! [​IMG] The hen really does not like it when I get close, but I just can't stay away!! [​IMG]
    Here are some pics

    Thanks [​IMG] 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 [​IMG] ) They do really make a great family together [​IMG] sometimes it is like she has the glow of mother hood or something [​IMG] I can't get over how cut lil ducklings are, I wise they would stay like that forever!!
