We started the barn renovation a few weeks ago and at the time found a duck sitting on eggs right in the way of the contractors. We moved the eggs and tried to get her to accept a new location without success. The eggs were incubated in the house and four tiny miracles began their new lives. The duckling with dark markings was the first to hatch and has become the leader of the pack. Above is their first venture into the great outdoors. Photos from day one.
