Four Rouen hens, well, three because one is a Rouen cross, sat on four nests and hatched forty something ducklings and one chick, a a little black bantam, most likely a rooster because it is all over the place faster than a lightening bolt. I don't know how it will survive because duck moms do not stop to warm their babies very much, not as much as chicks require. It is a few days older than the ducklings, which will help. Can you spot it?
the all yellow ducklings will be pure white and are most likely Khaki Campbells. The yellow with black are Anconas, the light fawn are Khaki Campbells and the dark ones with eye stripes are Rouens, but there are also Saxony mixes in the bunch. There is not Saxony drake present at this time, but three ducks do live on the farm. Welcome little buddies.
