Can you believe it? We are expecting 7 multiple births!
O.K. I know you are just as shocked as we are!
I mean for me to be over 50, oh my! What gossip there will be! They will be thinking that I was trying to compete for the octuplets! Who knows, there might be a surprise one there somewhere! I would go down in history of the oldest mother to have that many at once!
O.K. now that I have your mouth dropping on the floor, I have to admit that you don't have to worry about me. My body isn't quite up to it, much less hubby to be able to keep up the pace! hee hee
Remember our honeymoon couple from January? Elmer and Ivy have decided to start a family!
I discovered 7 eggs when I went over to feed them some corn.
Elmer was there in the straw next to the house, but Ivy was off having a grand old time while she left Elmer to babysit. lol He finally decided enough was enough and went off to find Ivy to scold her! They are so funny! Just hopefully they will make it to full term before something eats them. I read online that the incubation period is 35 days, so we shall see if I have something to report to you in a little over a month from now. I thought about messing around with them and adding some colorful Easter eggs in their nest,
but if Elmer is scolding Ivy now, can you imagine how he would blame her with running around with another duck? I can hear him now. "Ivy, you've got some esplainin' to do!"
