Same old story: a few weeks back the blue and white Muscovy duck disappeared - a fox had taken some off the dam when I couldn't get them off myself to pen them. But no, this one was secretly laying under the house, and walked out this morning with nine bubs. Gobsmacked. Aren't hawks smart, the ducklings hadn't been out for twenty minutes and two hawks were circling over the yard. So they are tucked up in a borrowed chook pen while I work out whether to keep them or sell them. Cute as, but think I have too many already.

I think I love ducklings more than chicks - they just look so much like miniature ducks. Chicks look nothing like chooks.
