And I missed it!! :(
I checked on the mama duck yesterday afternoon and nothing was out of the ordinary. She was still sitting on the eggs like nothing was new. I wasn't actually expecting them to hatch for a few more days.
Then this morning I went to check and there are baby ducks under her! I can't believe I missed the whole thing! They must have hatched during the night!
Last year she got off the eggs a lot in the afternoons and she got off of them completely when they were ready to hatch. But this year I almost never see her off of them. I haven't been able to get a good look at them in weeks, so I couldn't even check for cracks.
I'm SO bummed that I missed it!!! Watching the babies hatch last year was the best experience ever.
I'll get pictures in a little bit and post them, but there won't be hatching photos this year. :(
