Hi Everyone! Well I just had to share my experience from this weekend!! I was out and about yesterday cleaning up stuff in the yard and trying to get a little more organized for winter. Well I was out by my chicken house and I kept hearing this high pitch "peep" "peep". I gotta be honest, i just thought it was one of my smaller chickens.. but after hearing this for about 20 minutes I decided I better just go in to check. Well I know my chickens have been laying - but none would stay sitting on the eggs so i collect them regularly. BUT my one duck has been sitting for quite sometime..... My ducks was up getting some food and water so i went over to the nest and a little yellow feathered head peeked up at me. I was shocked! I am assuming one of my chickens laid an egg in there while she was away from her nest of something. It is my first chick that i had hatch for me.. So i am super excited! Even more excited that my duck hatched it. Can u believe that? I know she has duck eggs under her... Anyone know how long it takes for ducks to hatch? I am going to give her another week on them and then I am going to put some more chicken eggs under her. I might even try some of my other ducks eggs.. they dont seem to be sitting on them often. This might just work till i get an incubator!! LOL I am going to leave the chick with her "mama" for now.. but I am in the process of setting up something for any new arrivals I may get. ( I dont wanna mamma teaching them how to swim..) I was totally not expected this.. so now i have some fire lit under my butt to get this done! Thanks for letting me share! I am will try to get pictures tomorrow night (when I am home) and then i will post them on Wednesday!
