Parrothead

One of our ducks went missing, and she had a nest of eggs.

Fortunately, there was a surrogate who decided she would pick up the ball and run with it...

Also, in the duck house, we have another duck who is setting on her brood.

And, some recently hatched ducklings are growing fast!

In someone's pot, most likely.

No worries. All that will come to an end very soon.

I counted about 20 ducklings.

 

They look pretty healthy.

 

Did they all come from just 2 ducks (the missing one and the one sitting)?

One was a chick, in the video. The ducklings are from two broods. The eggs the hen is laying on, and the other duck as well, are two other broods that haven't hatched yet. So, four separate broods of ducklings, are addressed above. Sorry for the confusion.
