    This duck is AMAZING! She made her nest in the pasture, half an acre away from her pen. I figured I would have to go out today and catch her up, and I was not looking forward to it. I walked out in the pasture to get them and my grandma yelled, "Jordan, come look at this!" So I went, and she had the babies IN the pen! I have NO clue how they got in there,lol. So she's a great duck. She had 12 eggs and 10 hatched, the last two were duds. So, it was a 100% hatch! The parents are Pekin X Runner, so the babies are assorted colors. Anyways, here are the pics!

    Thanks, Josie! Im glad you liked the pipping pics, I thought they were fun to take.

    Thanks, Raindrop! I thought it was pretty smart too, I was totally amazed.

    Thanks, Ruth. I totally agree. You see so many people hatching with bators now, its nice to see a natural hatch sometimes. (Not saying bators are bad, I wish I had one!)

    Thanks, Angie! She was making some funny noises today, and I think I know which one she used,lol. They would all lay around and go to sleep, then she would make a loud chirp and all of their heads shot up. She did it over and over too, poor things.

    Thanks, Julio!! Jethro is doing great. He was watching me every time I walked by, he's really cute.

    Thanks, Lynn! Yep, that is daddy. I have no clue, they always have smiles on their faces! Does this mean you and Pat want ducks now? I have 12 you can take home! [​IMG]

    Thanks, Wildsky! I actually got the pic uploaded, so you are in luck!


    It may not look like much, but they were running as fast as they could to keep up with momma!
