    Yes, she was. Miss Emily gosling has quite an attitude already, if anyone comes anywhere near her, Momma Winnie hisses at them, and as will her Papa and Uncle, Jerome and Cotton as well. and if they don't, Emily peeps up, then they are on task!

    How cute they are, and she's such a good mom! Must be fun watching them grow up.

    Here's from a few days ago - Magnolia and the ducklings. One is now missing, and another isn't very strong, so is in the brooder for the night at least, but here they are from the tenth -




    Also, two new baby ducks hatched, this time from Wheezy. the Cayuga Duck momma. Here's the one that seemed poorly, needed warmth and some Niacin - which is the powder in the water. Wheezy is a first time momma, so far has hatched four eggs, two babies died, but two made it, and more still may hatch. Kermit decided to to risk it, so brought this little girl inside.

    And here is Miss Emily Gosling again, getting big so fast!



    I distracted her guardians with some lettuce, and was able to get this picture.

    Beautiful! Thank you, Karen.

    Sadly, something is preying on Magnolia's ducklings. She is down to two now. It may be a great blue heron near the pond, or the Camada geese, or a fox ... we do not know.

    They - Magnolia and her ducklings - have a hiding place where they sleep at night, but free range ruing the day. Her breed is not know for being great mothers after a certain point, and we do let her free range and go down to the pond, as she should - she's a water fowl. She can sleep inside at night, and has a chance to be inside if she wishes to, but she chooses not to do so.
