chicks hatched and a grumpy father

Post by Duck Whisperer » Wed Apr 02, 2014 12:38 pm

Davina's chicks finally hatched yesterday. Well 2 of them anyway. She laid 14 but only 2 have hatched in the the last 24 hours.

My question is, what about the other 12? :-)09

Next, George, her partner stays close to her but when ever the ducklings are close he pecks at them in a not very nice way :o

Help always appreciated. Photos' coming soon

Hi Dave!

exciting news!
can you confirm if these are chickens or ducks... sorry

If ducks, what breed and what enclosure are they in and are there other ducks around?
