    she said he was incubated and raised as a single duck for a while so he is very friendly and will sometimes sit on her lap, since getting him the girls he is more with them now.though but still friendly, she said even more than her muscovy. they all play together and swim and her females can get quite loud sometimes and sound as though they are laughing haha she said they are all wonderful ducks

    Here's a video of them. You can see that they really do have long necks.

    I found some interesting things in the history of Long Island ducks.

    First off, there is a building on Long Island called The Big Duck. A farmer built it in 1931 to sell ducks and duck eggs there.

    Second, there's a baseball team called the Long Island Ducks!

    Pictures are all from wikipedia.

    Really cute, thanks for the picture! I wonder how many aylesburys are in England? It seems like there are lots of them there but they're really rare here in America.
