This post is talking about the mother duck brings her duckling out of the nest after hatching.

You may follow the process of incubation from eggs to hatching at previous postings:

After hatching, babies are so sweet and precious. Colors of their body are yellow and combined with brownish. Positive and fun to watch.

Ducklings need several hours or a while to start their first steps, and moving in their nest.

Then it will takes about 10 weeks for babies to be able to regulate their body temperatures, hence, babies will stay with their mom within this period.

  12. Hello :=)
    The caring nature of parents towards their babies extends beyond humans but to all creatures. It is so endearing to see the ducklings being nurtured by the Muscovy Duck, and if you have ever seen a crocodile gently carrying it's babies in it's mouth it is as endearing as seeing the ducklings with their mother. Animals are great!!
