No Quacking: 16 'born' at once at Ochsner

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The employees at Ochsner Medical Center in Baton Rouge are celebrating what is believed the be their largest multiple birth ever.

Sixteen ducklings were hatched at the hospital Thursday morning, just outside the cafeteria. Leslie Herron, who works in the hospital's maternity department, says the hospital was quacking with excitement as word spread that the ducks were hatching.

"It's awesome, especially for our department," Herron said.

Herron says the "momma and daddy duck" have been guarding their new babies well. She said there is a large lake next to the hospital where she knows the new ducklings and their parents will be very happy.
