I Know it’s not Duckling Season

Duckling!

… but I came across these photos while I was preparing for my school presentation about kids and farming and since at least one reader (hi Photoleaper!) thinks ducklings are cute I thought I’d post them.

They are certainly cuter than the photos of the exploded pickled beets jar I was going to post… I tell you, it’s a thrill a minute around here!

Ducklings!

Oh my but these little dudes are cute!! Nine were hatched under two nest-sharing ducks and the tenth I brought inside and finished in the incubator with the turkey eggs after the egg was kicked out of the nest about halfway through the incubation period. After it hatched I gave him back to his moms and everyone seems to be getting along just fine.
