Another quick update...

Since the last post where two of the new duck eggs had hatched, we've had three more hatch!

The first two that were a little bit poorly have pulled through incredibly and you would never know that anything had been wrong.

We still have another three eggs in the incubator that have pipped, one that I think sadly died a while ago (as didn't look alive at last candling on Day 25) and one other that could or could not hatch.

But for now, here are some photos of the new babies

A quick update

Just a quick update so you don't all think I've fallen off the face of the earth!

So, 5 weeks ago today, Duckie's a reminder of what he looked like

then I went to a Poultry auction and got he/she some little friends

Well this is what they look like now - 5 weeks on

Duckie always seems to be posing


Also, 5 weeks ago tomorrow (Wednesday 4th May), these little ones hatched out (The Fuzzbutts)

Here is some updated photos of them

This is my favourite - I pretty certain it's a boy!  He likes to jump on your hand and I'm sure would be quite happy to walk around sat on my shoulder all day like a parrot - a real character!


Today a couple of the eggs from my last post (see here) hatched - they have hatched early and consequently are a little poorly, they are getting stronger throughout the day though and so I'm hoping they're going to put through, can't get a good photo of them yet as they're still in the incubator and I'm leaving them there as long as possible but here is a tiny glimpse

Plus two more eggs have pipped (that where they've started to break a hole in the shell), they are due to hatch tomorrow so their timing is spot on - fingers crossed for the rest to hatch ok.

More photos to follow soon x
