Duck, duck, duck, no goose…

More ducklings.

Can’t play duck, duck, goose here. I’m short on geese ha! 

Anyways. You all remember hay bale duck 

Well her ducklings hatched today. She hasn’t brought them outta the nest yet. 

If you look very closely in front of her there you can see 2 ducklings. There’s more under her. She’s keeping them well protected and warm. Today of all days was a tad chilly. 

Then my other nesting duck that nested in the weeds. Had gotten off her nest to eat and drink. So I snagged a picture of her nest. Looks like 9 eggs. 

Then I have a new duck laying in the cow barn no pictures to show of that nest yet. But she’s been sitting on it for 6 days now. Takes about 35 days or so for the eggs to hatch. I’ll be curious to see how many days exactly. 

Here’s the 3 mommas from the first round of hatching. And the last 4 of their babies. I swear they all 3 give me such dirty looks now. Can’t blame them i did take their babies. 

Those 4 ducklings have it made 3 moms tending to them. I haven’t decided if I’ll sell those 4 ducklings yet or not. If not now maybe later as adults. So then I’ll know the sexes. Many people are looking for hens vs drakes. 

But hopefully I’ll have more pictures tomorrow of the newest hatching of ducklings…..

Alright first off I do all my writing via my phone. So please don't judge me to harshly on the typos. I try to catch them but will most definitely miss a few. Next I'm not great at writing the about me sections of these things. You'll find out more about me by reading my posts vs me trying to squish something into the about me section. But here's a little tid bit. My name is Misty. I am 31 year old country gal. I'm a wife and mom. My son will be known as J in my blog posts. And hubby well will be hubby. Easy enough. I am a stay at home mom. Where not only do I tend to my son. But I run our small scale farm. Which includes cows, ducks, pigs, dairy goats, a pony, a dog and a cat. And coming soon chickens. We got rid of our last set of chickens over the winter. To make room for some young hens. We also have 2 large gardens and 2 smaller ones. I raise and grow about 90 percent of the food we eat. Lots of canning in the fall. I also enjoy hunting and fishing. So be on the look out for those stories in the blog. I created my blog to have a place to write. To share my thoughts/ramblings. Share our adventures. Good or bad. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
