We decided to bring in some fresh genetics for our micro flock of Ancona ducks.
Our three new baby ducklings (a male and two females, if the people who check these things are correct) arrived this morning at the local post office. They’d had a long, 2-and-a-half-day trip in a cardboard box from Cackle Hatchery to get to us, so I raced to pick them up and bring them back to the brooder box we’d set up.
Our babies are settling in well, eating and drinking and peeping. We set up a Nest camera (Nest is actually the brand name of the camera, that wasn’t just a lame pun) to live stream the duckling action, and I figured some of you guys might enjoy seeing them grow.
Streaming web-cam stuff is all new for us, but if all goes as planned you should be able to see a video of baby ducklings below:2
