    My ducklings hatched today! I had them together for a few minutes, but had to separate them. The first one is 6 hours old and the newer one just hatched about an hour ago. The bigger one was being a bully. [​IMG] So I have them in separate boxes, but they can still see each other. Hopefully by tonite, he/she will be more sociable. [​IMG]

    Anyway...pictures!!

    What was the older one doing? I know nibbling and stuff is normal. I cant imagine a duckling that young being a bully....
    they are super cute! Hopefully they are together now! :)

    LOL Yeah they were just nibbling, but since the second hadn't been hatched very long, I was concerned since he couldn't retaliate or even walk away. But, they are best buddies now! I put them back together yesterday evening and now they are inseparable. [​IMG]

    X2! Is the fluffier one a Black Swedish, or a mix? And I can't even tell about the other one, it's still so bedraggled from hatching! Little cuties [​IMG]

    I'll post some better pics tomorrow, but I have a Mallard drake, a Muscovy hen, and a Blue Swedish hen....sooo somewhere in between? [​IMG] [​IMG] The second that was hatched has fluffed out completely and looks like my Blue Swedish.
