MORE GOLD !!


After 3 days hatching, I awaited the final duckling to hatch from the incredible 14 egg survival saga. With bated breath it finally broke free, and I was overjoyed to see yet again another golden duckling !  
One of my previous posts was entitled the miracle of eggs, only days after that, the trust rescued 14 eggs on the 6th of April.


 Today all 14 eggs have hatched and the ducklings are feeding happily by themselves. 


Considering these eggs were under icy water for several hours with less than week to hatch, is truly a miracle of survival. Short video below showing feeding time.

I'm anything but, Getting the incubator right and the approx date of hatching helped in their chances of survival.
