Post I've got ducklings!
I had set 6 duck eggs under a broody bantam due to hatch tomorrow, but yesterday I saw an empty shell so had a peek and 5 have hatched already! Just giving that last egg a bit longer but will have to move them to another cage soon so hope it is today. Photos when I get a chance. Mum chook is sitting tight over them.

Ducklings are so cute.
Congrats.

Now just wait for them to get into the water dish and watch mum's horrified look :lol:

Very cute. Love the bottom photo where that little black and yellow number at the back has it's head tilted towards the camera.
