It’s officially official, tonight I swapped the infertile chicken eggs under my extremely large and broody Delaware hen for 5 somewhat carefully selected fertile duck eggs from my flock. With any luck in 28 days there will be pirate ducklings taking over the chicken coop. Dela happily and carefully tucked each egg underneath her, wiggled her butt, and settled down on top of them. Follow along for photos and fun as we wait for the littles to make an appearance. This will be my first journey hatching anything. Here is a photo of my big macks, the suppliers of the eggs.
