About a month ago we added duckling to the farm! And there is the CUTEST story about these ducklings. First of all, I have been looking for ducks because I am allergic to chicken eggs, but duck eggs have a different protein structure and don’t make me sick! How cool is that?! So if you are allergic to eggs see if ducks eggs make a difference.
Getting ducklings in the fall isn’t very common so I was having trouble finding some, and I specifically wanted the Khaki Campbell breed because they are the best layers. Well out of the blue my Dad found some on Craigslist because a chicken had sat on the duck eggs and hatched them out while the family was on vacation! Yes a chicken! That is why they were hatched in the fall! When I went to pick up the ducklings it was so precious to see the little ducks following their momma chicken. That chicken had a real hard time letting go of her babies! I wish I had a picture of the chicken with the ducklings, but sadly I don’t. Here is a picture of the true parents and they are the cutest love birds:
Here they are only 1-2 days old and my oh my they are adorable.
It really is remarkable how much joy animals bring and there is always something exciting going on when it comes to rasing ducks. Have a wonderful week everyone! Feel free to comment below and share your favorite duck experiences!
