Izzy became a mother for the first time on Sunday.

She’s a very protective mom and is doing a great job with her five babies. One duckling in particular is a carbon copy of Izzy as a wee babe. Recognize the Izzy smile?

Izzy as a wee duckling:

Everyone hatched out just fine, but Don thought it best to give duckling #4 a bit of help since it was taking an extremely long time to break out:

Interestingly, Izzy was completely okay with the help.

Everyone is doing just fine now:

Eating and drinking and frolicking… even if never far from Izzy:

Meanwhile, Emmy is sitting on 13 eggs, which we expect to hatch next week. 

It’s a good thing we love little baby ducks.
