If a picture is worth a thousand words, then is a video worth a million?

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to sit in the bottom of a feed tub:

Up until Monday, we were referring to Izzy and her brood as “Izzy and the kids.” On Monday evening, after making what was for us a very difficult decision, Don took Izzy’s two boys (drakes) to a new home. I never figured it would be so hard and that I’d feel so bad seeing them leave Morning Bray Farm.

Izzy wasn’t happy about seeing the boys go either, but she still has her girls.

They’ll be nine weeks old on Sunday and they’re still growing like weeds.

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.
