Meadow was very curious as soon as we could hear the ducklings cheeping under the steps and kept sticking her head under :D
Mama and one-day-old ducklings. She is NOT happy with us for caging her.Week-old cuties. Ducklings are so adorable :)
Here she is looking for a way out of her new pen. Poor mama, doesn't realize we are trying to keep her babies safe.
She can fly out the one uncovered corner of the pen, which she does occasionally. But, of course, she always comes back to her babies before long. She is very protective, she makes a sort of honking sound very unlike her usual soft chirp if you get too close. Once when I grabbed one of her babies to move them out of the cage she came at me hissing and stomping her feet.
