    Some of you may have seen my post not long ago about how one of my Muscovy hens, KD, lost all 9 of her ducklings to the frozen weather. Well When I found them I was quite devistated but she did have a few eggs left in her nest and although, very cold, I moved them immediately to the 'bator in hopes of saving them.

    Well, last night the cutest little Chocolate duckling hatched! I had to help him a little at first, and continue to come back every 20 minutes and talk to him a little to keep him motivated [​IMG] but after about an hour he just Zooomed right out of his shell!

    'He' hatched on Mom's birthday and since it's just what she wanted, she named him "Whisper".... She loves the way they talk to eachother.

    I am still waiting to see if the others hatch but i think they were all 1-2days apart... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here's the little booger [​IMG] with his Cochin buddies... they're the ones that made such a mess of the brooder! [​IMG]

    Im So happy for you and your mom. After loosing the others it must have been very joyous to find little ones still alive. Im sure little Whisper will be a very spoilt duckling.
