This will be a short story as Chucken is only five days old.
We have a Muskovey hen setting on her eggs. She also had one chicken egg in there. How it got there, I don't know. As the ducks take 31 days to hatch and the chickens only 21, that egg cracked and out came Chucken. So the duck is still settting on her eggs, which should hatch this week and Chucken sleeps with his "Mama" every night. No matter how he tries to get her to go out of the chicken coop with him to find food and water, she won't go. So he's out there on his own (we let them free range). It'll be interesting to see what he does once his sisters and brothers hatch.
Have a blessed Friday.
