Well, I guess Chloe did know what she was doing, as she has hatched some ducklings! Also means Captain Speck the drake knows what he is doing too!
I’m leaving well alone at the moment, so not really sure how many there are.. but I think at least six. Chloe came out to eat, drink wash and fly, and all the time kept up a bit of a conversation with her young, tucked up and left behind, safely in the nest.
Again, totally different to chickens – I’m sure the chicks would follow the hen out. (Must remember.. ducks are not chickens…..)
