Fall Ducklings.

Because the summer was so hot our poor Momma ducks did not have an easy time incubating their eggs.  Although the coop is in the shade and we keep it ventilated, it still is quite warm in there during the summer months.  We have one Momma duck who has tried several times unsuccessfully to raise a family.  She seems a little spooky too and we thought this year she'd be headed for the roaster.  Well, good thing we kept her around a little longer....

make way for ducklings.... 15 of them to be exact.
She was not going to be unsuccessful this time.  She hatched 15 little yellow ducklings.  We are keeping them inside until they get feathers since it is getting cold at night. 

Doesn't this just make you smile?
