A few weeks ago our friends, the Sculleys, gave us some duck eggs. We gave 3 of them to one of our Silkie hens and put the rest in the incubator.
This morning one of the eggs hatched! I'm sure the hen was surprised to see a duck hatching from the egg instead of a chick!
Isn't he cute?!
This duckling is about to hatch!


Two more ducklings have hatched!We still have not come up with good names for them - leave us a comment if you have any suggestions!
