SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A team of nine ducklings and their mother now have a new place to call home. 

About a month ago a duck picked the courtyard by CoxHealth’s Orthopedics Department to make a nest and lay eggs. 

The location seemed like a great spot to her, and staff and passersby were careful not to bother the nesting mother. 

Nine ducklings hatched a few days ago, hospital staff says the young family proves to be a good distraction for the hospital’s rehab patients. 

Thursday, the ducklings and mother duck were gently moved to a more safe environment. 

We’re told the group will have a pond to enjoy in their new location, take a look at the ducks while they were still at CoxHealth in the video above!
