Ducklings!

Karène's babies started hatching yesterday! A seventh duckling just hatched this morning. We'll see if any more hatch today. There were 13 eggs but I think at least a couple were duds.


They really are the cutest things on earth!


Squeeeeee!


Karène is a good mama, but she lets me pick up her babies without freaking out. I took her some kale yesterday and she ate it out of my hand while sitting on her nest.

Once all the babies have hatched, I will move everyone to the "duck nursery", a separate little house we use every year for mama and babies.

I just love this whole process. So sweet!
