    Miss Lumi (who is only 8 months old) hatched out 13 little fluffy babies! Of course... she clearly didn't realize that it would be so cold in December! LOL! ETA: my recent blog post: http://2mooses.weebly.com/4/post/2011/12/christmas-babies-muscovy-style.html (same pics, more story)

    It's cold out but she's clearly enjoying stretching her legs in the sunshine and fresh air after setting those eggs for so long. The babies are doing great!

    Thanks everyone! When you have such a beautiful subjects, the pictures pretty much take themselves [​IMG]

    Lumi is doing great and the babies are really thriving... even in this cold weather.
