Ping the Puddleduck

This is Ping, the first duckling hatched out of six. We had a broody hen that wanted to sit on eggs, but didn't have any fertile chicken eggs. So, Caitlin decided to put six duck eggs under her, and all of them hatched. They are now 3 weeks old and starting to get their downy white feathers. We moved them out of the garage to the duck pen yesterday. They are living with the mallards for now.
