I took my ducklings out for their daily walk yesterday. It was chilly and very windy so we didn't stay out long. We ambled down to my pond and the ducklings dabbled around the rocks and played. I kept hearing the loud stressed peeping of baby ducks but mine were doing there usual quiet duck chatter. Across the pond I could see the brush moving and out popped 2 mallard ducklings swimming like crazy to join my little flock. My duckies are about 2 weeks old these little guys are about half the size of my ducks and very timid. I saw a pair of adult mallards on the pond up to last week but the male has flown an I beleive the female is nesting in my blackberry bushes. She nestered their last year and raised 22 ducklings in my pond. It's way to early in CT for ducklings to hatch and I have absolutely no idea where they came from. They have settled and are eating the crumbles and drinking water. I walked all over the woods behind the pond looking for a nest but found nothing. They seem content,happy and are putting on weight.
