Fight Against Maturity

This kid is no quack

A [12 year old boy] has defied the odds and hatched a duckling from a box of eggs he bought from a supermarket. Will Parris paid £1.50 (€2.25) for the box of free range duck eggs which he took under his wing…With his dad Andrew’s help he borrowed an incubator, put the eggs inside and waited to see what would happen.

In the early hours of July 8 with friend Josh Collier staying over, the boys were woken up to see a duckling start to break free from one of the shells. “We saw the crack in the egg and the duckling trying to peck its way out,” he said. “It was amazing. I thought nothing would hatch. I have never had a pet like this before. This beats the rest,” said Will (12).
