    Cute!! Its lovley to see a chicken with ducklings or vice versa...but when the " mother ' is so young it makes it all the cuter.

    I have a 3 month old goose who has been mothering the ducklings since she was around the same age. I dont know if Max is a goose or gander yet - and knowing what protective parents they are regardless of gender - it really doesnt help to give me a clue as to sex yet.
