Broody Mama

Our duck hen Abby Cadabby, succumbed to maternal instincts a few weeks ago. We think she has about 2 more weeks to go before we should see some ducklings. Being a first time mom, hatching out a clutch is not a sure thing, but she seems determined and we are hopeful.

The other ducks have been busy doing ducky things and enjoying the short bouts of nice weather. Last time the sun was out, I herded them to the front yard for some landscaping duties.
Unfortunately they were more interested in playing in the sprinkler than working. They did manage to get some aerating done as well as bug munching, but the sprinkler was definitely the big draw.
