My duckies have hatched and taking their first swim

Post  Moderator on Tue Sep 10, 2013 10:27 pm

About a month ago one of my chickens went broody so I popped two fertile duck eggs under her from the farm down the road and hey presto 28 days later two little duckies hatched Smile 

Here's a little vid of them taking their first bath today and mum wasn't best pleased with me taking her babies away but they're all snuggled up in their coop now I love you

Not yet, I need to sex them first but one of them is suppose to be going to live with one of my friends ducks and chooks but I don't think I can let any of them go Sad  

I've been thinking of names, maybe some unisex names too or not, I have no problem with a guy being called Shirley or whatever  Of course they have to be named after rock stars or maybe a blues singer. Ideas?

Still no names but I was thinking maybe Duck Dunn 'The Bassist' for one of them   I'm gonna put some coloured leg rings on them today so they can be violet duckie and red duckie until I decide, it's a very serious and important decision you know Wink  

Here's some more piccys Very Happy
