This is an update to my earlier post titled: The Homewood Duck
My husband and I have been checking during past few days to get an update on the status of the eggs but each time were met with not-so-friendly mom. Finally after my workout session today, I stopped by the Hilton Homewood Suites. With my fingers crossed and hoping for the mom to be absent, I slowly approached the planter. Yes! she was away and I got closer while turning my camera on. As I bent down to take a glimpse of the eggs, my jaw dropped. There were too many of them. I kept on counting: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
I took a couple of quick pictures and re-counted the eggs. I was wrong, there were…
Eight of them!
Yes, there are eight eggs now. Count them yourself:
It seems most duck eggs hatch in about a month (+/- a few days) and each duck can lay an egg every other day or so. Based on our initial discovery of 3 eggs about 13 days ago and adding a few days to that; I think the first eggs should hatch in about 10 days. Will do my best to catch a glimpse of the little chicks.
