If you can enjoy the joke let a hen set a clutch of duck eggs. When they hatch they will imprint on the hen but will jump into the first puddle they come to and mama will be beside herself because baby chicks and water don’t mix.

One of my dad’s often used expressions was,”nervous as a hen with a litter of ducks”.

Here’s a link to a video of a calf as it is born. Click HERE to watch as the little girl comes into the world. Her mom was having trouble on her own and needed our assistance.

Muscovy hatchlings! There are 9, maybe 10. First one hatched yesterday, the rest today. This is a first for us. Pretty fun.

Is is okay for us to pick them up and hold them? I mean, is it safe for them?

I (sorta) have a farm in Africa.

They’re sweeties!  Normally it is just fine to pick them up almost right away MamaJ…and with Muscovies, it’s probably extra good to do so they are very tame and used to people right away.  Muscovies can get pretty wild.

Thanks for sharing!

Just spent the last 45 minutes chasing mother and ducklings around in the dark to get them all back into the house. Don’t know what happened, but I heard peeping where it shouldn’t be and sure enough 2 of them were out. Then 3, then mama. What a fiasco.
