Animal activity is really growing on the farm. Just this morning Farmer Bryan & Tes watched a baby duck poke it’s crammed little body out of it’s shell. After about 24 hours of dedicated pecking (we could hear the tiny tapping when we held the egg to our ear) , a crack was made in the shell, then more tapping and a beak was seen, then a little black eye, and , just this morning it’s little black sticky being was born into Bryan’s farmer hands, and is now is Tes’ pocket! A ducks gestation is 28 days. Not much for a whole new being to come to life. The miracle of life and death happens often in farm life. We look forward to this new little ducky (and his friends still on the way) living a wonderful life here at NTC.
