Duckling and Chicks Diary Week 5

We have had a wonderful week, meeting our chicks and ducklings. We arrived Monday morning to cracked eggs, Tuesday to some ducklings and Wednesday to lots of chicks. We watched the chicks and ducklings hatch out of the eggs.

On Thursday, it was time for the chicks and ducklings to leave the incubator. We were so excited to hold them. They are tiny and fluffy. We can tell the difference between the chicks and ducklings as their beaks and feet are different. They must stay under a red lamp for a few weeks, to keep warm. We give them chick crumb and water to eat and drink.
