    I Went to the coop this afternoon and found this adorable things running around with 2 mommas! Apparently someone hatched them and both got off their nests(i think i saved a few eggs though).

    I was all worried because the mommas were stompping all over them so i set up the small coop my mom gave me and put up a pen around it for the older ducklings, they settled in very quickly, really enjoying being outside.

    I built another little coop & run for 1 momma & the babies but mom wasn't loving it, just freaking out. I moved mom back and put the babies in the now empty brooder. They all look really good [​IMG]

    Sadly they will all have to find a new home, I'm full up on babies right now [​IMG]

    UGH..the little spot headed ones are the CUTEST!!! If i had room i would SO keep them right now.

    I had to move the bigger ducklings back into the brooder because they're too dumb to sleep under their coop with the heat light. The babies are in a hamster cage on the kitchen counter for the night, I will probably take them to the feed store in the morning...(fingers crossed that they have some more WC goslings!)

    They sure are cute. I think ducklings are so cute cause it's the only way we will put up with their messes!!! LOL

    Bleenie, what kind are they? Muscovy? I had two little yellow ones with spots on their heads like that and they grew up to be nice looking, white drakes with black caps. They also had blue eyes, which I thought was unusual. Had to rehome them though, cause I had too many drakes.

    Very adorable!

    Yep, they're Pure Muscovy. The 2 mommas are..1 blue pied & 1 black "picasso" lol. She's kind of stripey, i guess it'd be pied but shes very different than most pieds.

    Graham Hay Market(Graham, WA) buys Muscovy ducklings($5/ea), im not sure about other breeds though. I know dels will probably take them but just for free, they also take bunnies too & then resell them of course.

    Maybe just reduce the price to find them good homes, sometimes you have to [​IMG]
    what breed are they?
