Background from yesterday
Coming home on the highway tonight after getting the kids I saw this bunch of tiny baby ducklings on the edge of the highway and whats worse I spotted their dead mother squished in the middle.So now I have two wild duck babies.......They are so cute!
I made DH stop, he wasn't too happy about it, and go back so I could grab the ducklings so they didn't get squished too (I'm an animal lover and just couldn't bare leaving them)
Got them all a good way off the road and down the embankment but trying to grab them some ran into some really long grass and a fence - I could only grab two of them! I tried hard to coax them out and get thru but unless I wanted to be eaten by a snake there was no way I could reach them.... I feel bad but at least they are far from the road and I could save two!
They survived the night just fine and are eating and drinking pretty good. The kids are just enthralled with them and I must say its lucky we have a huge backyard! Obviously I won't be able to keep them so I am going to raise them til they are fully feathered etc and then send them out to live on a farm.
