signs of spring

We know its spring when the ducks start producing eggs. Its really spring when those eggs start hatching!

Today the first two eggs hatched.
And Jasmine, who is a true duckling lover, volunteered  to take care of the little cuties.

It was like we could hear her saying "pick me, pick me" with a smile we should not trust!

Baby ducklings and daffodils. It is most assuredly spring time now!

As the ducklings hatch, they will be moved to the brooder, where food, water and a short sided container with rocks in it allows them to splash about.

How do we know when they are ready to leave the brooder? They outgrow it, and need more room to move! Only takes a couple of weeks with ducks.
