Are You My Mother?

 As I have mentioned before, we are overrun with Broody Hens around the farm.  So when yet another hen got the urge to hatch out, we, not wanting anymore chicks, decided to try something different.
A chicken raising ducklings??  Well why not! :)  

The babies are so adorable, "squishy little marshmallows" as Charity calls them. 

Hey, they're the same color as their foster mom. That counts right?! 

They are currently infatuated with all the red parts on her face, and will poke and peck at her.  A little different from them. :)

 "Whatcha doin Mom?"

It will be rather fun to watch what their temporary Mother will do once they grow up and take an interest in swimming and the like. Hopefully it won't stress her out too much. :) Always something to watch around here!
