I have to say that raising ducklings is very traumatic as unfortunately the first little one didn't make it. It was hardly drinking or eating anything, even with help from us. The second one is much more lively and went for the food and water immediately: the first one didn't, so something wasn't right there. So, fingers crossed for number two, and we now have some more eggs in the incubator. Rachel has gone to a talk by Dr. Natasha Campbell Mcbride, about nutrition for behavioural and learning disabilities, and digestive and immune system disorders. She has done work on eczema, colic and skin diseases, and is a very good speaker.
