Raising Ducks Part 3

If you missed Raising Ducks Part One or Two, make sure to check them out. Otherwise, to catch you up to speed, only two out of six eggs in the incubator hatched. We have been raising two ducks for several weeks now but I knew we should have a bigger flock.

Last Sunday, we went to the same farm that the eggs came from and picked up five more ducks that hatched about two weeks prior to my two ducks. I wasn’t sure how everyone would get along but they instantly become a group of seven.

We spent the first few days locked up inside the coop together, getting used to each other and then the next five days in the small run during the day. Here are some pictures from last night, about six days after this little family was united.

They have been enjoying playing in the water and eating kale.
