Year 2 received some ducklings yesterday and we are all very excited to have them. Luckily, this morning we actually got to see them hatch! Did you know that ducklings have an 'egg tooth'? This is a sharp tooth at the end of their beak to help them break out of their shell. This quickly falls off after hatching.
Today the duckling came out of their brooder for a 5 minute splash around. It was fun watching them dart and dive around in the water.
