    No pics yet as I saw them leaving for work this morning. Hershey has 3 little baby Runner/Mallard ducklings. These are first she has hatched herself!
    Now if only everyone would stop laying and sitting and just lay a dozen every couple of weeks or so....

    Thanks! Also an added bonus, Hershey's daughter Babette formerly Bubba, just hatched 3 babies too! They are Hershey's eggs, we switched them because Babette's weren't fertile, she hatched her siblings! Now we have 6 babies.
