Unplanned Birthday Suprise


6 Muscovy ducklings

Bittersweet moments are pretty common with farm animals.
After sitting on 6 eggs for 35 days the mamma duck is missing.
Luckily we had the incubator out so it didn’t take too long to get it up and running to dry off the ducklings. Now that they’re dried off they’ll be moved to a tub until they are old enough to live in the barn.


  1. They are adorable…mommy must have been shocked as well:P

  2. Your ducklings are so sweet. I don’t know if you have read my series on the duck I raised a few summers ago, the Dilly Chronicles, but I am going to post it again and you might like it.

  3. Alecia,

    These little ducklings are so sweet. I grew up in upstate NY, almost right across the street from a farm. (They developed the area around the property.) That’s so fun that you have your own little homestead.

    I’m visiting from the Lines Across My Face linky party. I would love if you stopped by my blog.

    Thanks for sharing,

  6. What an adventure. I love our little 5 ac farm but we’re on the complete other side of the country. 🙂 Fun to see what goes on in NY too! Hope your mama comes back. 🙁 We just got 8 new hens from the neighbor. It’s always something!
