Break through!

Just got a message from the Tall Kid, and seems Ms Pip is a good broody duck. First two ducklings hatched this afternoon. Purebred Anconas, Pip is a silver hen and the proud papa is the Ms prized lavender drake. But we could get just about any color available.

She's been sitting and sitting and I was just talking today about having to boot her off the nest this weekend and check to make sure they were viable eggs. Doesn't look like I'll have to do that now!

Man I need to get caught up on photos---again, will have those for you tomorrow!

Now I have to set up a second brooder for them. At least it's not blazing hot like it was last week.

Later gators....
