Two days ago, my father came home with five newborn ducklings!
Look at them!!
Those tiny fellows were scared and kept calling for their mum all the time.
But mum was not around to take care of her babies.
They were so sweet quacking one at a time.
And they always keept close to each other.
My dad put them in plastic crater, as our cat was looking at them like freshly cooked dinner. Above the crater, he placed a wire cover to keep fluffy Katina away.
I kind of feel bad for separating them from their mother at that young age.
But they will grow soon and they will learn how to be strong and healthy ducks on their own.
By the way, can you tell what species they are?
It's hard to tell at that age, but... do you want to give it a try?
Hint: They are not that beautiful as adults...
