Banjo and her babies

Only tiny but Banjo is now taking them for walks in their area of the duck run. I have supplied a small dish for the ducklings to paddle in.

Baby ducklings can become tired and drown if they can't climb out of the dish. As they clammer over Banjo and hide under her wings, their little bodies will become water proof.

Its going to be a few weeks before these 3 will be running with the other ducks, due to the bigger ponds.

Oh so cute! Our muscovy is laying eggs now so keep your fingers crossed for me... she hasn't had much luck in the past.

Oh I do hope you have some luck this time round. Banjo is always going broody. The only way I am able to "snap" her out of it is let her raise a couple of the ducklings.

This hatching there were 7 ducklings.
