Make room for ducklings

There she is, the proud mom. A bit too proud, perhaps, because this overachieving mother seems to have managed to hatch about 10 eggs. (The previous record, held by her mother, was four.) I don't know exactly how many Peeps has because she won't let me get close enough to find out. (The closeup photos below are courtesy of a Zoom lens!) But one thing's for sure -- it's a lot more ducklings than I was expecting.

I am not quite sure what I'm going to do with so many ducks, but if you're in the market for fertilizer, let me know -- I expect to have it in large quantities next spring.

Meanwhile, why worry about the price of duck food when you have tiny ducklings to enjoy?
