She did it! Finally!!! It took her long enough but she pulled it off. Angie had ducklings and brought them by to see grand-mama. Better late than never, as the saying goes.
Seven little balls of fluff spent a good ten minutes with me, nibbling on bread and trying to stay out of the way of the flock of adults mingling around. Angie kept a watchful eye on them, while filling her crop at the same time. Who’s better than Angie? Nobody!
Even a duck as watchful and resourceful as Angie couldn’t compete with the aggressive drakes milling about though. She would peck at them anytime they got near the chicks and one finally had enough of it. Being a mom must have slowed her down, because he quickly got the upper wing and showed her who was boss.
After the scuffle, she decided to gather-up the chicks and leave.
I can’t say if Brad is the father, but who am I to judge? I know Angie wouldn’t settle for just any drake. All that matters is I’m a grandmother, which is a really cool thing.
Blessed be :}
