The Mommy-Posse takes the four baby ducklings around the farm, never leaving them alone. One mom per baby. The bio-mom is especially protective. I found one little duckling in the weeds on her side. I thought, oh, no, what happened and picked her up. Bad idea. Mom came flying at me and I let go of the baby and ran. I'm very impressed with the collective effort on behalf of the little ones. There is a nest of 17 eggs up in the mow but I fear it's been abandoned. That makes four failed nests that I know of in the last couple of years. It also makes these four babies more precious. I just hope they are females. Very hard to tell with ducks.
