friend of James
Has successfully raised several duckling broods
and this month she has been sitting again
But the clutch we put under her have come from a variety of sources. James is a bit indiscriminate
The problem is – Muscovys are genetically very different from other breeds and have a a longer incubation time so there was a possibility the eggs might hatch at different times.
In the event, one egg hatched two days ago
Looks like a pure bred Cayuga (nothing to do with Cagney or James) – Lucky and his ladies
must still be up to it.
Anyway, this individual needs care while Cagney sits tight a little longer. Then she can go back.
She is not amused about being all alone and would prefer our constant company if nothing else is available. To get it she will climb the bars
squeeze through onto the table
pretend she can fly
and set off across the carpet
