Today was a lovely sight to behold. The ducklings that we have been rearing for the last few weeks have been released. We have been able to keep them very wild and such releasing them was just a matter of waiting for them to grow up a bit. Watching the mother duck, who also adopted the orphaned group of ducklings in to her brood, set off with all the babies in tow was an absolute joy and makes all the work totally worth it.
Below you can see some pictures we took not long before their release, showing just how much they've grown in such a short amount of time.
The young chickens are still with us, once they are old enough they will be re-homed.
