    I wanted to introduce my baby ducks parents. Mommy is Hershey a Chocolate Runner, Twinkie is Daddy a Fawn Runner. The White Pekin is Aunt Whitey, Uncle Emeril didn't want to pose but he is a Mallard Drake.

    I bet your baby duck loves you too!

    Since you are the surrogate momma duck, it'll be interesting to see how long s/he stays bonded to you. I've never had just one duckling at a time. Mine always grow up and decide I'm not ducky enough to hang with. [​IMG]
