The ducklings have now moved to the farm and are enjoying their new pad.
In the absence of a mother they will follow any pair of legs that happens to walk past. It's quite a comical sight to see someone walking along the path followed closely by a line of five little waddling ducklings (actually, being runner ducks, they run, not waddle).
One of the ducklings has found a safe warm place to fall asleep.
The Indian Runner ducks have now hatched and are causing mischief already. We had 6 eggs of which 5 have hatched and developed into healthy little beasts. Andi's cats are scared of them because when they run around the floor they make a lot of little patting noises, so they have been staying there for now without fear of being attacked by cats. They will be moved upto the farm in a few weeks time. There are only 4 ducks in these pictures as 1 of them took a little longer to hatch than the others.
