ASBURY PARK - One Monmouth County restaurant has duck on its menu and ducklings jumping off its roof.

Seven ducklings hatched on the roof of the Asbury Festhalle & Biergarten in Asbury Park, then wanted to follow their mother to the ground Thursday.

Office manager Adria Alfro says workers spotted the nest several weeks ago and shielded it from customers.

Alfro says when her boss, Jennifer Lampert, arrived Thursday, the mother duck was on the ground quacking. Then she felt something brush by her and realized the ducklings were jumping.

The sous chef used his hat to catch two of the ducklings, and Alfro stopped traffic so the family could cross the street and enter a lake.

Perhaps the ducklings realized the German restaurant was offering a duck special this week. 

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
