A couple of days ago Beatrice hatched 17 out of 19 eggs. By the next day the ducklings were raring to go, running around the yard and exploring everything. I think Beatrice enjoyed being out and about but she has a busy time ahead of her.
Boris has a couple of new companions, Betty and Beulah, to keep him company while Beatrice continues to sit on her 19 eggs. He is looking much happier and the new girls settled in very well.
Boris the Duck is in the dumps because his partner Beatrice just started sitting on a clutch of eggs and won’t have anything do with him. It’s going to be a long month.
