    This is what greeted me this morning [​IMG] I had no idea I even had a broody duck. She was nesting out by the front trees and we never saw her there. 9 beautiful babies.... We did find the nest and took out 5 unhatched eggs in various stages of development and put into the incubator. Apparently another duck liked her spot too. LOL! We also found a duckling left behind who has wry neck that we brought inside and we have started him on poly-vi-sol. He seems to already be showing some improvement. [​IMG]

    WOW!! What a gorgeous surprise... Ducklings too- one of the best kind there is to have I think. They are all gorgeous -well done to momma duck - and good luck with the little one you took insie- Hope he improves enough to be able to go rejoin his family soon.
