Our First Duck Eggs Have Hatched!!

We were surprised this afternoon by 2 of our duck eggs hatching, and the cute tiny babies that they are!! We have raised ducklings before, but this is the first time we have ever had our adult ducks sit on their eggs until they hatched. We have 4 female ducks and 1 male. We are certain though that the mommy sitting with these two little ones isn't their actual mother. Two of the female ducks, Mocha and Brownie, alternate sitting on the nest of eggs. However, though Mocha is sitting on them and with them right now, I would almost guarantee that their real mommy is Brownie as they look just like her.
