Default They've Hatched! We've got Ducklings!!

I'm posting today with very exciting news (if you haven't already guessed by the title)but the ducklings have hatched!!

They hatched today, right on schedule! I counted 13 ducklings but Mama's been sitting on them so it's possible I missed one or two. There is only 1 dud egg, so I think she did pretty good! I posted many pictures and a couple videos below because I have to share all the cuteness that will melt your heart! As expected, they only stuck around until the ducklings were strong enough to walk. Unfortunately, I had to leave for my choir concert so I wasn't able to see where they went or help them on their way. But Piper's been a very protective mama so I'm hopeful they'll make it!

I plan on doing at least 1 painting or art piece with all the pictures I got!


She has a talent to be able to sit on all her little babies! You can just make out two sticking out on either side.



Poor Bella was jealous and hated being left inside. She knew I was paying attention to something besides her!


So happy mama duck moved so I could see all her babies!





Crawling over each other


All their little heads peeping out!


Getting ready to go!



Here's the dud. There's half of a hatched egg beside it



These 2 videos are completely raw! I don't have time to edit them tonight and I wanted to post this today! As you can see, Piper was getting a little distressed every time I moved, so I tried to keep my distance from her. She is much more protective of her babies now that they've hatched! Understandably so So the video is a bit shaky as I shifted and a bit blurry since I had to zoom. But the cuteness of the babies overrides all of that!

Katie,

The pictures and videos are great!
Thank you so much for sharing them with us.
I'm so glad we got to see Piper's ducklings before they started off for their long journey.
I pray they all got to the pond safely and will have long and happy lives.

They are adorable, I am glad you have decided to do an art piece of them, you have a great talent and I am sure it will turn out well.
Many years ago I lived where there was a pond behind a wooded area at the back of my house and I used to get mama ducks and their babies coming daily into the yard, it was so cute to see them all in a line following mama.

Oh my goodness, they are absolutely adorable! What precious little ducklings I'm so glad that they're all doing well; I hope they made it safely to the pond! How special that you got to host them for their short stay

I can't wait to see any pictures of them you decide to draw!

That is great. A wild mallard is staying in front of your door. Do keep showing the progress as it happens. Seems you and your neighbor will help the ducks. Duck got lucky and picked the right place to land. Hope those predators do not get the ducks, seems there are several near you.
