    I'm nervous, I admit it!! I'm loaning my three new babies out to a kinder class in El Paso because their eggs didn't hatch. Their school district provided the eggs and they weren't fertile and the kiddos were so upset!
    These three hatched between Thursday and Sunday, the white one Thursday morning, the black one Friday morning (it's so tiny!!) and the duckling hatched Sunday morning. I know my AP's daughter will take good care of my babies,, but I'm worried anyway! I was going to give them some eggs but with everyone turning broody I didn't want to upset them by snatching an egg they are sitting on and trying to relocate it.

    I brought our 2 ducklings to show and tell to my dd's school and made the rounds....the kinder class was a bit challenging namely for one boy kept picking the ducks up and superman flying it through the air. peep peep peep! That poor duck. Kid doesn't listen for sqwat.

    Time to go to the first grade...see ya later kids. ha ha.

    I told her they could handle the big white chick and the duckling some but don't touch the black one, it's too tiny. It is the middle child of the pic, it hatched Friday but didn't even stand up until Sunday. I left it in the hatcher and the duck hatched in there Sunday and it thinks the little black one is it's baby or mommy I'm not sure but it won't let the white one near it.

    Well my mom is very disgruntled with me! She came over to see how the babies were doing and they were gone, she was upset that I would let a Kinderclass have custody of the little black chick for a couple of days. I'm worried too, now I feel just awful!
