    I am SURE that Panda just hates me now, lol. I just removed the first hatchlings and gave her Zimas currently hatching eggs that she keeps getting off of (driving me nuts!). I am removing the babies because it's been freezing at night down here and she nested under the back of the coop where it's not enclosed.. little booger.

    3 Black Barreds
    1 Black Pied
    1 Solid Black

    on the way to the brooder:

    All warm under the heat light.. the other babies were SO interested in the newbies!

    And Momma Panda with her big messy nest!

    Oh YEAH she hates you! Taking away her babies, lol.

    It's best for the ducklings, though.

    Cute pictures.

    Awww, they're cute. Yep, if she can't keep them warm, it's best to do that for her. You can always take the babies back to her when it's warmer and when you can supervise them together.

    She still has at least 12 more eggs under her & Zima only had 3 left.. and i think, with all of her getting off the nest, one of them is no longer alive. I am going to check on them again in the morning and remove it if it's not changed by then.

    The ducklings are darling... all snuggled together. Mama duck is pretty too - mad or not. : )
