And then there were two…

Our babies

 

With number three in the process of hatching as I write. Life – what an amazing process! 

Late last night my husband came into the house  with a partially hatched egg in hand.  A baby duck was in the process of breaking out.  Not sure what we should do to help, we helped it (later to learn that is not a good thing to do) out of  its shell.  The little one was weak and we immediately put it under the light to keep it warm.  I was  nervous because it seemed so worn out.  But then again, I guess that would be expected – considering the whole birthing process.  

Baby number one was running around burning off huge amounts of energy while baby number two was trying to rest from hatching. 

I checked on them in the middle of the night and baby two seemed to be getting stronger.  By 5:30 this morning it was sitting up and making noise with its sibling.  I can’t believe how tough these little chicks are.  They are the cutest little things.  

I imagine by the end of this evening we will have three babies.
