After supper I went to visit. I discovered two ducks and two chicks dead in the pen. The only explanation is that Mama Hen decided they were intruders. I did not see the second two chicks and hope that she's accepted them.
I feel so guilty for assuming that the hen would accept all these babies into her care. I let my amusement go before my generally cautious barn sense. I showed bad judgment, and the babies paid with their short lives.
It's Ulani's birthday today, but my celebration is done.
