Mum loves new pet ducklings after eggs she bought at Morrisons started hatching

A mum has said she's in love with her brood of three pet baby ducklings that she hatched herself from three Morrisons eggs.

Deza Empson, 31, bought six Braddock-White Clarence Court eggs at the supermarket and on a whim put them in an incubator she bought on Amazon to breed budgies.

Amazingly just five days later when Deza shone a light on the make shift nest she could see little ducklings developing inside some of the eggs.

The little chicks began pecked their way to freedom three weeks later – with River and Dusk arriving first, followed by Daisy a day later.

Now they've become a firm part of Deza's family and love nothing more than a splash in the bath.

In fact Daisy has grown so attached to Deza she follows her around, snuggling on her shoulder.

Now Deeza plans to keep Daisy, but River and Dusk will go to live with her cousin.

Mum-of-three Deza from Yorkshire said: "They're lovely. It's so crazy. They just follow me everywhere.

"When I first saw them move I could hardly believe it. I was like, 'oh my god. I'm getting ducks!' My bond with Daisy is really special.

"She cries for me all the time. I think she's so attached to me because I had to help her and she hatched last.

"I can't imagine now that somebody else could have bought and eaten her."

The hatchlings now all sleep upstairs and Deza has to pop her hand over the little cage when the duckling calls out.

She said Daisy squeaks and wiggles her tail whenever she sees her human 'mum'.

Daisy snuggles on Deza's neck, nibbling her hair while she is watching TV or cooking.

Deza believes her new little yellow pets are Aylesbury ducks and will turn white.

But as much as she loves the ducks, Deza admitted the constant cleaning up of duckling poop is a bit of a challenge.

Deza said: "They're so lovely, but it just wasn't what I expected at all. Eggs you buy from the supermarket just shouldn't be fertile.

"My nan loves duck eggs and she won’t touch them anymore now she knows they might be alive, and friends I’ve told don’t ever want to eat eggs again."
