Friday headcount

The chick numbers just keep falling. Since Tuesday, when we had 6 (4, 2), we've now dropped to 4 (4, 0). It looks like one of our mother duckers (mother two?) has now lost all of her chicks. The remaining 4 are definitely associated with a single mother. We do, however, still have three mothers in the quad. No sign of chicks from mother three yet, although we don't see her very often, which suggests she might be off keeping her eggs warm. Anyway, more news from the Malthusian quad next week.
