UberDucky and brood
For the uninitiated, UberDucky showed up in the garden recently with 18 adorable newborn chicks. Because so many Muscovy moms sadly lose their chicks -- one after another -- to predators, I always worry about them and wonder if any will be missing the next time I see them.
Not only did UberDucky not lose any chicks, but she showed up the next day with 18 plus 3. That's right -- 21. So she's had those for a couple of days and then tonight, after they stopped off in the garden, I took a pic of them swimming in the lake and later counted them: There are now 22.
So rather than lose chicks, the UberDucky clan continues to grow. I wonder who will join her floating party next.
