A woman who bought duck eggs was surprised. Three of the eggs hatched. The woman named her ducklings Beep, Peep and Meep. She bought the eggs last month. She was at home all day and decided to use her free time to do something different. She told reporters she got the idea for incubating eggs from a Facebook video. The video showed how someone hatched eggs after buying them from a supermarket.

The woman said the ducklings would be happy. They will be friends for her pet chickens. She said: "I saw the duck eggs and thought maybe they would [hatch]. I was so excited for them to hatch, but I still [knew] that these are supermarket eggs." She was surprised when the eggs hatched. She called it an "amazing" experience. She said the ducklings were, "the cutest little balls of fluff". A duck farm said it is unusual for supermarket eggs to hatch.
