The hatching of the rarest ducklings on earth. Hi everyone we’re back with a wonderful story about three ducklings of a species that has almost gone extinct. Ever since I was a little boy, ducklings have been my first love. So I was thrilled when I got the chance to get some precious rare eggs to incubate and help to protect a once famous duck species from vanishing for good.
The Anas Curvirostra – The Hook Bill
It was capable of producing over 300 eggs a year and had a funny appearance with its curved beak. Once there were millions of this ducks and now there are only about 80 good (well formed) egg laying female ducks of the Hook Bill left. I got in contact with a man that is trying to keep the species alive. We discussed that giving this duck some attention and telling its story could maybe help. I have learned a lot from him and I was also happy to share my 30+ years of experience in incubating and raising ducklings. The species could use your help. So in case you’re serious about keeping ducks and you’re interested in the Hook Bill, please send us a mail at SaveHookBill@gmail.com and we will take a look at the possibilities in your country.
