We were very excited to welcome an arrival that looked like this….
We spent nearly a week investigating what might be inside the 5 eggs- some children wondered if it might be turtles or birds, flamingos or maybe even dinosaurs!
Then one Friday morning we noticed that one of eggs was rocking a little bit and there was a tiny hole! We watched all morning until something pushed more shell out of the way… and if we listened very carefully we could hear chirping too. To our amazement, suddenly a tired little duckling pushed his was out of the egg! We were so excited and watched him try to find his feet and move around. One at a time each egg hatched another duckling until we have 5!
The following week was such fun, stroking, watching them peck their food and drink and even giving them a bath!
