    I'll Post another pic once I am home today as you can actually see him now that the little guy is not in the incubator.
    I'm a little bummed only 1 hatched but we just recently hatched some chicks so I am sure they will keep each other company.

    :love My ducklings and chicks share a brooder and are absolutely bats about each other. Whenever I take the ducklings out for their swim the chicks go nuts until I bring them back. I often find the chicks sleeping on the ducklings' backs, or snuggled up with them too. Your little guy should be along well with your chicks :)

    They get along great! The chicks were a bit weary at first but when I came back in after an hour or so they were snuggled up together! Glad they all get along, it has also gotten attached to my girlfriend quite a bit. Whenever it hears her voice the little guy goes nuts!

    Can't get enough photos around here for sure. Especially baby critters- ducks are the best!

    My girlfriend has a few good ones of the duck in its first time in water! Absolutely adorable, she said sometime today she'd send some over so I can share.
