3 Weeks Old Today

baby rouen duckling

Gotta keep junior cool

Our very own Rouen duckling!

Imagine my surprise when, three weeks ago, I was discarding what I figured were dud eggs one of barred rock hens had decided to set on and discovered a bill poking out!

She’s completely imprinted on me… follows me everywhere. I’m amazed she’s made it this long without getting stepped on considering she’s always under foot.

We need her to grow up and begin laying as soon as possible!
