Australian Shelducks A-Laying~

Australian shelducks a-laying! Though lyrically not fitting into the song, we’ll take it! As you can see, the female is quite gravid and is just about done with the current clutch; 9 eggs laid so far. Down is being pulled and setting should commence soon. Of the shelducks, I find the Australian shelducks (this pair at least) to be less temperamental than the others and have worked generally well within this community aviary. Now we must wait to see if that will all change in the coming weeks!
