A woman has hatched three ducks from eggs she bought in Waitrose.



Charli Lello put the eggs into an incubator as an experiment to pass time while furloughed, which led to Beep, Peep and Meep hatching.

The 29-year-old shopper got the idea after watching a Facebook video of someone hatching quail eggs from a supermarket.

Lello said: ''While I was in Waitrose, I saw the duck eggs and thought maybe they would work as well. I was so excited for them to hatch but I still had in the back of my mind that these are supermarket eggs.

''They have been collected, bashed around on a delivery truck, they rattled around on a trolley onto a shelf, picked up and put down by who knows how many people, so they still might not go all the way.''

The ducklings hatched a month after Charli bought the eggs, and she described it as an ''amazing'' experience.
