    I wonder if the mama got so sick of them all that she dumped the poor ducklings into the drain on purpose...:lol:

    I saw her when I went to deliver something, and was talking to her then i noticed the grate when one almost fell in.
    Then i saw two come out of the tunnel by the grate in the parking lot, and go back into the tunnel out by the grate by the fountain. And freaked out.

    Found a good home for them. They have a brooder ready to go after moving the previous brood out last week. Plenty of acreage to range .
