    I'm soooooo excited. Lucille, one of my Muscovy females has been setting and her babies are hatching. I can see at least 3 so far.[​IMG]

    Our first babies!!!!! Gosh Lucille looks ragged doesn't she? Poor girl. Motherhood is hard. [​IMG]

    Quote:I don't have a pond, just some baby pools. You don't need a pond for most ducks. My big baby pools do just fine.

    And thanks rustywoman.. Snakeman and I are just tickled pink about it. We have become the crazy duck people. [​IMG]

    I tried to see if the other 3 eggs had hatched this evening but it cooled off really nice tonight and she has them well covered. I'll have to see tomorrow.
