Newly Hatched

Some of you may remember the post I did last spring about my bosses ducklings Huey, Dewey & Louie or the post I did last July with them enjoying the summer weather, well now its time for an update. Huey, Dewey & Louie turned out to be girls and are now called Puddle, Daisy and Louise! They were joined by a drake named Alan, and he has been thoroughly enjoying his hareem! The result - Daisy has been sitting on five eggs, one of which hatched on Friday night. But Daisy didn't want to be a mummy and cast him out into the night (wipe the tears from your eyes.) Here he is though, fighting fit and being raised by hand. What a cutie!

What a brilliant photo - I want one! I hope his new parents don't get too attached, though it will be difficult as he's so cute! Does he have a name?

Oh perrrrrleeeease can I have it. I know I asked for another animal the other day but really I simply must have the hand duckling. Just look at his tiny web feet.

Another best ever shot - I've never seen a better photo of a little duck. Come to think of it, I've never seen a newborn duck before. Cute as a bug in a rug.
