One of my new baby ducklings...can't tell which one it is from this angle. Got this picture...umm, since it's midnight I guess it'd be yesterday. RIGHT before he shook off, haha.

It's REALLY hard to take good pictures of animals that follow you closely. Only times I could get pictures of them was when they were eating or preening...except for this one!

Such a funny angle though XD

This little boy is about a month old, and was sold to me as a running/rouan duck. He's meant to look like a mallard, but when he's full grown he won't be able to fly, and will probably not be a dabbing duck and may be more up-right than a mallard. I've only raised this type of duck once...normally I raise mallards.

the cute little shit omg
You're lucky to have them! They're so cute!
I love ducklings! I used to always get some! They'd follow me around everywhere if I let them!
I wish I could have them again, but my current living space doesn't allow for it :(

Aww, I know how that is...I haven't been able to have more than my cat (who I had to bring back to my parent's place anyhow 'cause apartment living was too stressful on her) and my friend's leopard gecko who I'm convinced hates me at this point for the past 4 years. Ducklings can be such a delight, I want to raise more once I move out, haha. Hopefully you can get some in the future as well! ^_^

Ah, I'd honestly rather have chicks. I just. I always go to the grain store in the spring and see all the chicks just saying to myself "ONE DAY. ONE DAY I AM GOING TO BUY ALL OF YOU, AND EVERYTHING WILL BE KAWAII DESU AND NOTHING WILL HURT." Baby birds in general are just such a delight! The last ducklings I had were actually wild ones that I raised until they were able to let them go ;w;

Haha, I know I'm getting some chicks when I'm able! Though I have to read up more about raising chickens...never was able to do that growing up 'cause my parent's neighborhood had a strict "no farm animals" rule (we didn't have enough yard for a coop anyhow). And you released your ducks too? Man, every time I run into people who raised ducks they always said how "cruel" it was to do that! (I always raised mallards or mallard-like ducks, and released them on a private lake or pond in a gated community for crying out loud!)

OH MY GOSSSSSSSSH!!! It's so cute!!

I want a duck so bad. My mom says I can't because they smell though. Never mind the fact we own 20 or so chickens and she's letting me buy about 20 chicks of a certain breed I like. Yeah.
I think if I got a duck I would get a swedish blue, Khaki campbell or a mallard and clip it's wings..... though I have taken a liking to fawn running ducks as of late. Something about their upright bodies is so intriguing.

^_^ Thanks! lol They're cute for the first...two months, lol.

But that's a bummer that she won't let you get one. They DO make quite the stinks though...but I've never owned chickens (not allowed in my parent's neighborhood, and as a college student going from apartment to apartment that obviously wouldn't go well, haha). Ducks get the additional pain in the rear of being wet stinky things though. Honestly, if you want a duck that won't fly away at all, instead of clipping a mallard's wings I'd actually recommend these guys. These were a little more "friendly" than any of the mallards I've raised have been (I raise and release...parents live on a lake in a gated community), and, well, otherwise they're your typical duck and look nearly the same, except a bit more upright, haha.
