Meep!

Cameron found an egg while he was out fishing. They didn't know if it was fertilised but they made a makeshift incubator from a popcorn can and a 35 watt light bulb to keep the temperature between 99.5 and 100.5 degrees. Twenty eight days later, Meep hatched!

Here she is at 16 hours old!

Here she is growing her first feathers!

 

Two years on, Meep has angel wing but is an otherwise healthy and happy duck who is very much part of the family!
