Our Ducklings Have Hatched!

We are the very proud guardians of 10 gorgeous fluffy ducklings. The eggs at both of our nurseries have now hatched and the ducklings have been exploring their new homes. The children have been fantastic, helping to care for them, feed and water them as well as remembering to be gentle when watching and handling them. It is incredible to see how quickly the ducklings change. Just yesterday they were weak and exhausted with wet feathers following their hatching. Today they are gorgeous fluffy bundles, full of energy and happily exploring their new home. This has been such an amazing experience for our children, really helping them to start thinking about lifecycles and how we care for living things. Please do pop in and see our new additions. Next week the children will be taking them for their first swim in one of our shallow trays. It could be fun!
