Easter surprise!

Yesterday I found a little newly hatched duckling, barely alive, inside the 'peep-peep hotel' with the older chicks.  I'm not too sure how it got there, DH speculated that Giselle was showing it the food and it got stuck.  We tried to put it back with her but it didn't make it.  

This morning, we found another surprise!  This time, it was a very happy, healthy duckling.  Giselle seems to be doing ok showing it the ropes, but she still has about 17 eggs in her nest that haven't hatched.  I find it hard to belive they are all duds, so hopefully she won't mind sitting a few more days, just in case.  :)
