Sadly number 4 was abandoned by mum this morning  :( As I don't have an incy I have had to dispose of the egg. It had pipped and last night was chirping in the egg, but it was stone cold when I found it this morning (I did briefly debate the "up the jumper" method of finishing hatching!). Today was day 28 so the other 3 were all early, and I think had she sat a few more hours this one would have joined them  :(

The other 3 (Jet, Buttercup & Sapphire) are doing really well and are currently in the little run with mum enjoying the sunshine while also scaring Eve when they try to climb into the water  ::) :lol:

Jet is two days old so she really needed now to take him/her to the food and water so she was just doing what was best for the babies already out I guess. Still, made me wish I had an incy so I could have popped it in there (although I think she had kicked it out for a few hours so it was probably too late anyway). I'm surprised by the fertility rate anyway as all my ducks had only been laying a few weeks and it was a risk even using the eggs so three healthy ducklings is a wonderful result - it also shows that Bumble was really doing the business with all the girls and not just his favourite girl Jade  :D

I am having a few problems at the moment with Bumble though as he always heads for Jade and he has hurt her head pinning her :( There is some feather loss and soreness but there doesn't appear to be much I can do other than antiseptic spray for infection as it isn't a nasty pecking or pulling, just the normal pinning  ::)

I just vent sexed and *think* I have two girls and one boy. Typically my naming does not suit them though as Buttercup is the little boy  :lol:
