Poor little babies. we had hatched three little duckies a couple days ago and they were doing great in their brooder on the porch, and SO cute. Two were Khakis and the third was a Khaki x Blue Runner. Well, this morning I didn't wake up until 11 and I was asking my dad if the horse and the other ducks had been fed yet. then I stepped onto the porch to check on the babies and the wire cover was ajar. I was hoping that they were still in there and that the cover had just somehow slipped. No duckies in there. It was such a small opening too. We think only a weasle could fit in there. I'm still hoping that maybe one got away and is hiding in the corner, but I'm not too hopeful. I just hope I don't find any parts. I'm so sad. I had hobbled the Runner cross and s/he was doing so great and let me pick him up while the other two ran away. This is very discouraging. For the next hatch I think I'm going to find some runner eggs, and put something heavy on top of their brooder so nothing can get in.
