    So a few weeks ago, one of my rouen hen disappeared, I had no idea where she had went, and I thought she was gone for good. But, a few mornings ago, I went outside to do the feedings, and there she was. Her and her 7 little babies! All seem to be doing well. Luckily, she was the calm hen and lets me go see them. Any idea on how old they are, or a guess?

    Thank you! The kids all love them. They run outside and just want to pick them up, but Gracie the Duck, pecks at them...They just don't learn their lessons. She'd disapear once in a while, then she started to stay away, but now she's back with her adorable babies!

    I would say there about a week maybe a week and half old
    because of there size.They tend to get really heavy quick but there
    heads bodies cant keep up so there all out of proportion

    I would guess 2 weeks old.

    Your duck is very pretty. And of course her little ones are adorable. [​IMG]
