14 Muscovey Ducklings

Yesterday, when our grandkids were having riding lessons (see http://www.SleipnirMorganHorseFarm.com), our grandson noticed one of the Mama ducks was walking along with a bunch of  little yellow dots following her.

14 ducklings later, Mama Duck One and the wee ones were gathered up and in a safe space…with grass and water and shelter.  Otherwise, they are fair game to predator birds and others.

So the first births of Spring (besides the sprouted seeds) are ducklings.

Mama Duck Two is still on a nest.

It is truly amazing how they could protect the eggs during last week’s freeze, and hatch out when the weather is going to be good.
