After sitting for weeks on unfertile eggs, I went to the feed store and bought 2 ducklings.
That night after dark I removed the eggs and put the ducklings under her. She said "cluck, cluck, I knew if I kept at it they would hatch!"
Now at 2 weeks old they have already outgrown her and can't get under her wings. But she still mothers them.
|AHHHHHHHHHHHH SPRING, when all things seem possible!|
