The ducklings had their first peek at sunshine today! Not only is Kitty giving them just a bit more breathing room, but she actually got off her clutch for a few minutes! Of course, I didn’t have my camera on me when that happened, but it was glorious none-the-less!
The sweet little fluff balls are starting to push out from beneath Mom and even harass each other a bit!
I still have no idea how many are in there…I’ve counted at least eight but there could be up to 14.
Time will tell.
Mama Mello, however, is still holding out on us.
Big as a bus and thoroughly uncomfortable, today marks day 148 (Day 3 of hostage negotiations).
Ember was so sweet with her yesterday, sitting with her, petting her, telling her it will all be OK and that the babies should just come out 🙂
Mama’s udder, though full for a while now, is significantly fuller and harder today…so maybe today will be the day?!
Again, that time thing.
Hopefully my next update will include actual kids and a so very tired and proud Mama!
