In just a few short days we will be receiving new babies!
A month ago I ordered 4 Buff goslings and 4 Welsh Harlequin ducklings from Purely Poultry.com. The same place that I purchased Midnight, Star, and Buttercup from two years ago.
And they should be getting shipped here on July 5th!
My Silly girl Midnight, a Cayuga duck has been setting on a clutch of about 10 eggs for a couple weeks now, as well. So, we will see.
She's been a very dedicated mamma, this is the first time she's actually sat on eggs for any great length of time. She usually gets board after a few hours, a day at most, then looses interest. So this is a surprise.
Buttercup has decided to help keep eggs warm too, about half of the time. she isn't nearly as dedicated as she was a couple months ago, when she was sharing a nest with Star. But she's still helping and it's sweet.
I am also right around 16 weeks into my pregnancy and have begun to feel flutters. I've missed this feeling. It's been nearly nine years. My children are excited about baby. And I'm happy I'm no longer feeling nauseous 24/7 anymore. Morning sickness is awful.
Until next time,
Your friend Tracy at Lucky Duck Grove!
