Latest Arrivals

Remember those duck nests I posted about recently? Those ducklings are beginning to hatch. We really like these heritage breeds, like the Magpie here, that will sit on a nest and mother their own young. Her nest wasn’t one of the outdoor ones I showed in the other post; she’s been safely nestled in the corner of an outbuilding near the house. She has three hatchlings so far; two are poking out of her feathers, and the other is drying out underneath her. They should be off the nest and walking around the barnyard soon. Stay tuned.
