Ducklings

Pask’s eggs hatched!

They hatched on Sat Oct 15.
There are 5 ducklings. So cute!
They learned to swim the next day. See how Pask is lifeguard?

Here is an interesting fact:
When ducklings are hatched, the mother gives them waterproofing oils.
If ducklings are not hatched by their mother (but in an incubator), they will not be waterproof until they grow their adult feathers.

    Very interesting about the waterproofing. I did not know that. I wonder if that’s true for all birds?
