New Life by Sapphiresenthiss New Life by Sapphiresenthiss
Two days ago I rescued 4 duck eggs - unfortunately their mother is dead, killed by a dog.
I was holding them in heat and moisture and now they are hatching!
This one we see is already very tame and loves to cuddle to my hand :) There are already two of 4 babies out!
Now there will be a lot of hard work, but I'm glad from one thing - they seem to like their new super-giant mom =D

awww these lucky ducks*no pun intended*That was sweet of you to rescue them
I remember as a little girl my cat almost killed this poor bunny.It was still really small. I wanted to take of the poor thing but my step dad snatched him from me and threw him down the hill,and killed it

Yes, they are already free now - with other wild duck in a small lake near to my house.

Why he did it? I get absolutely mad when I see 'people' like him - sorry, but I'd smash his face if I was there.

My father is similiar, though he doesn't even try to kill animals. But I hate him to. So don't worry and be happy that he left :hug:

He isn't my 'dad' anymore. That's how I called him when I was little brat. He is just a man who procreated me. That's all.

awww! wait till they start following you arund the house! :) keep them under a lamp for a few weeks though, they can't keep they're own body temp yet. OH! and when they're about a week old don't forget to put them in the tub so they can learn how to swim.

kudos to you for being an animal warrior! Are you going to prep these little cuties for release?

:iconsapphiresenthiss:
Sapphiresenthiss Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
To be honest I don't know where I should relase them :hmm: As you already read, there are a lot of dangers - dogs, and also foxes and weasels.

well unfortuanately that is a part of life. Talk to your local wildlife rehab professional or zookeeper. Perhaps when the babies are old enough, you can release them at the zoo.

I think I'll release them at Łazienki - that's the polish park with a lot of ducks, peacocks, fishes and other. There are also people who feed them, is a BIG lake and are no dangerous animals. That's the perfect place :)

Did you have them just from the hatch? The newborns are hard to take care of. Older indeed, are easy.
