We have hatched out four ducklings for a friend and today attempted to see if Banana and her family would be happy to accept them (they are only a few days apart in age). Well, as the photo shows, the ducklings were happy to snuggle up but Banana was not so impressed with her new additions. Muscovies are usually quite happy to accept more charges but we think we are a bit late with these. Her original brood are now over a week old and so very imprinted. We will leave them altogether but with a heat lamp for the younger ones and see how it goes. We are confident she won't attack them and hope that she may end up accepting them.
