Niagara Gazette — Ducks usually mate in March. It takes 28 days to hatch. For some reason, the ducklings were late.
When they made their arrival on Wednesday about 4 a.m. Esther was excited and woke up her husband. "You gotta get the ramps up because the babies are here!" she said.
Don sets up the diving board to use as a ramp so the ducklings can get out of the water. The Owens planned to open the pool Wednesday, but have put off cleaning the pool.
