    So I had a thread in incubating and hatching, but they're hatched now, so I'm moving it here.

    I'm so in love, guys. It's ridiculous.

    ------

    I don't know if you guys know this or not, but getting your ducks in a row... A lot easier said then done.

    But still doable nonetheless.

    So for your viewing please, here are the Fantastic Five's 3 day old portraits.

    This is Joe. Joe was the last to hatch and I cried when he came out, because he was bleeding everywhere. His umbilical cord ripped and he still had an external yolk. But now he's bigger than everyone else and a giant bully. Go figure.

    This is Larry. He's my favorite, but don't tell the others. He's brown with yellow wing tips and a yellow ring under his neck. Any idea what color he'll turn out to be?

    [​IMG]
    This is Shemp. He's teeny tiny. Fourth out of the egg, but only half as big as the others...

    [​IMG]
    My little Curly. First out of the egg. (And the easiest to pick out of the group!)

    [​IMG]
    And last but not least, Mo. He was second born. He came out of the egg with a mohawk, which is where his name came from. He started the whole stooge name thing.

    Any ideas what colors they might be when they are grown?

    Oh, sorry! Not a ditzy question! Ducklings look like ducklings.

    They are runner ducks.

    He does. He's an evil little bugger.

    Joe, Shemp, and Mo are all being given away to a farm close by that holds camps for kids with down syndrome, to help come out of their shell. I was sad to let them go, but I feel much better now (especially knowing they're not going to get eaten!).
