We hatched our first duckling!

 We actually hatched a duckling! Looks to be a Khaki Campbell, but we'll see as it grows if there is any Welsh Harlequin mixed in.
 She's doing great, but since I didn't want her to be alone, she's in the box with a few baby chicks. This means I can't give her a little bowl of water to swim in, since the chicks would drown in it.  Maybe tonight I'll put some warm water in a dog bowl and let her have her first swim!
Trying to get some cute pictures of her, I put her on the floor for a minute, and Schroediger came over to say hi.
