    These little buggers hatched 2 weeks ago just as we got 20in snow! The mama had a nest up on a loft in the barn i didnt know about. As i was trying to figure out how to get them down without getting mauled by mama they found a gap in the boards. They fell about 8ft onto some straw unharmed :) mama none the wiser! They've been doing really well. Had bath time today in the tub and loved it. Now they are fresh and fluffy! [​IMG]

    CUTE!!! Well, wild muscovy sometimes nest in trees and there are other ducks that do so I guess as long as they have something soft to land on, they will be okay.

    At least you were aware of them before they fell. I can only imagine the surprise you would have gotten if you had been in there and it started raining ducklings. LOL

    Well it was funny i heard peeping so i was searching and couldnt find anything. I was standing in the doorway and looked and just saw a glimpse of yellow up high and couldnt believe my eyes! Thank goodness baby ducks are tough. Its kind of like wood ducks i guess :)
