This little duckling says welcome spring as it bursts from its eggshell ready to meet the world! Hand carved from American chestnut the wood grain is wonderful as it peeks through the painted duckling and eggshell. Peter also used coarse chestnut shavings on the base for bedding. The duckling's feet are made from copper wire and sheeting and textured for a life-like look. This little guy will warm your heart!
