Of the five eggs in Mother Duck’s nest, one is the largest and last to hatch. Bigger and paler than the others, this last hatchling is treated as an outsider by Mother Duck and her ducklings. He may be the best swimmer of the brood, but this is not enough to ensure his acceptance. Knowing only rejection, this Ugly Duckling goes out into the wild alone.
