Finally,Ducklings On The Yard!



Remember when I got my ducks last year and my waiting in vain for the babies to come...

Well, finally they managed to get their acts together and reproduce..!

Yesterday late afternoon there were four....




...and six this morning!
There is another Mama sitting on a stack of eggs which should also hatch soon..
Now to try and keep them out of harm's (snakes and rock monitors' ) way!!!
We have put them in a coop until they are a little stronger..
They are sooo cute!

  6. They are adorable Liesl. Everything seems to be fertile around your area lately. I'd be careful if I was you!
