A shopper bought some free range duck eggs from Waitrose and, having been inspired by someone who hatched quail eggs bought from a supermarket, she put them in an incubator. A month later three ducklings hatched. They are Braddock White ducklings, the adult white feathered ducks are difficult to sex so a male duck might have accidentally been put in with females. The ducklings have been named Beep, Peep and Meep.
Somewhere in another universe, dear brother, you got saved.
