‘WILLOW’ fell out of her shell into my hand, the two-tone 1st born of AbbiNorm L. Dukk & the late Miss Audri DukkBurn.
Miss Lillith, her Hatch-Momm, set diligently for 25 days to bring us the 1st of 3-ish Qwakkenstein Babies from the ill-advised mating of a Jumbo Pekin drake & a Khaki Campbell duck.
Will keep you updated on the results of Audri’s last two eggs and hopefully to include pix instead of sketches for you to ‘goo’ like Aunti’s & Uncles over!

‘FERN’ (‘SPRITE’?) arrived, pretty much the same way WILLOW did, except, she somehow got herself turned around since I checked on her last and now her head was turned sharp back inward and her bill was protruding out the other side. All by their lonesome- a pair of bigg lips!
Picture this please, if you will….
It took me almost a full minute to realize what the shrek I was looking at, assess the situation for optimal outcome, and decided I should give her a hand sorting it out.
‘FERN’/ ‘SPRITE’? doesn’t have as many yellow (white feathers later) markings on her as ‘WILLOW’ does, appearing quite abit consistently dark brown of fur, giving the impression she has a chance of looking like Momm (Audri).
Please keep in mind that the gender pronouns are just randomly pulled out of the air, until the customary time to vent sex a duckling comes in 5-10 days after hatch. So don’t even think of going there with me
Names are chosen with the idea of being unisex as much as possible, as therapy fees may be incurred later in the duck’s Life, if they should ever discover otherwise
This season’s hatchling names will reflect the theme of anything found in the Faeri Wood down in the ravine, where lies Dukki Jones Locker, somewhere in Violet the Pirate’s Lost Cove Aargh!

‘ANGEL’ has decided not to participate, at this Time. She will be missed
