All Mixed Up

What? What's that you say?

There's something wrong with this picture?


I really can't imagine what it would be.

We already had a duck adopt a chick, so what's wrong with a chicken hatching a duckling?

Because, dang... dirty fingernails aside, who wouldn't this baby?

I mean, have you ever seen anything cuter?

Cuz I don't think I have.


  1. precious sure beats the blue jay baby that I found.

  2. Alright - where has that hen been roosting anyway, hmmm?

    Tsk, Tsk, Henny Penny. The truth always gets out eventually.

  3. Hahaha!! Not to hard to tell the mailman's kid, now is it?

  4. Very sweet. Did she hatch that duckling? We've been thinking about having a chicken hatch a few duckling to free-range on our property. Still need to look into it some more.

  5. She did hatch it. She was insistently broody (which was surprising since her breed is not known for it's mothering abilities) so we gave her 4 duck eggs. Only this one hatched, and it was a couple days late. I'm not sure that the "conditions" under a chicken are quite the same as under a duck. I have heard that since ducks take baths everyday, the eggs get a little wet, and that they actually need that. I don't know for sure, though.
