Hi everyone, I admit I far from being an expert on ducks and to be perfectly honest, this is my very first duck. What I am is a mother of two girls who love animals as I do and this little one was almost roadkill and saved by us. I looked to find the mother but no one in close vicinity has ducks that I know of so this duckling became our family pet. My daughters are fully aware if the duck decides to fly away it is what nature intended to happen, but if the duck decided to stay he/she is welcome. With that being said, he/she follows me around the fenced in backyard and when loses site of me starts chirping loudly then makes a mad dash to me when I'm spotted. I think I became mama duck lol. Maybe because i go out every morning to help dig up worms and find bugs in addition to his/her regular food? Jumping on my lap or sitting next to me gives me another clue but has me wondering if this is a duck or a cat. Anyway, here is a picture of our rescue, "Quackers." The day we got it in the later part of July and how he/she has grown to this point. I have absolutely no clue if it is male or female or even what breed it is. Can someone help me? Thank you in advance. Any advice is welcome too as I am new to this.
