As a new experiment, we tried hatching out some eggs ourselves. Out of eight eggs, we got these two fine feathered friends. The duckling was a product of one of our backyard pairs of Pekin ducks. The Sultan bantam chick was from some eggs we bought on eBay of all places. (Check out what he’s going to grow up to be. Yikes.) These guys enjoyed a week of entertaining preschoolers in the big boys’ classroom and now they’re home with us. They’re great buddies and I am wondering how this imprinting will play out in the future. They got some curious stares from the other fowl in the backyard when we had them stretch their legs out on the grass and nibble on a few worms. We’ll see in another week or two when they join the rest outside.
