One of these things is not like the other.
I went out to the hen house this morning and of my hens was acting funny..... I thought she might have a chick under her.
Nope. I found this little guy instead. What a surprise!
The odd of him surviving out with the rest of the velociraptors was very low... so I scooped him up and put him with the fresh meats.
Why didn't I put him in a crate with his "momma?" Well... I'm not sure about a chicken raising a duckling... plus little ducks, more so than chicks, tend to be a lot more mobile. This way I can keep an eye on him and also he can hang out with the same-ish aged chicks. They will outpace him soon enough but at least he has a fighting chance.
He was a little confused by everything that happened but I think he's going to be OK.
Happy Thursday everyone! Do you have a surprise duckling?
