Sonny, the Duck

My son hatched this duck from eggs he collected from our 4 sweet little ducks that we had last year. Their lives were cut short by a hungry fox. Cry.

Then my son went out in November and collected all the eggs that the two females laid in the little doghouse. He made an incubator, 2 actually, and after much sweat, tears, and prayers 9 little ducklings were hatched. One died right away. Another died a month later. There was a lot of grieving around here, can I just say that? I never want to hatch out anything ever again! It’s too hard.
Anyway, we have 5 black/blue Swedish duck mixes, one handicapped duck (can’t walk), and one very special duck who was one of the last ducklings to hatch. That’s Sonny, the duck.

Here is Sonny on the front step!
happy spring!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
