    Oh I know it! I thought the same thing. I found the picture on FB and the caption said, "I bet no one will share this" and while I truly dislike it when folks do that, I didn't share it, I saved it, snipped off the caption and brought it here to see what kind of duck it is. I would love to add one or two to my duck family. Sweet as sugar. =)

    Ducklings will eat Chick Starter, they are self sufficient from hatch. A warning about water, however, is that while they are water fowl, they will drown as long as they have down. So they cannot swim for long, and shouldn't be allowed in water without direct supervision, which their parents would provide. But feeding would be Chick Starter (at any feed store, Tractor Supply carries DuMor which is excellent, and they like mixed greens (torn in small pieces NO stems for babies). They bond quickly, so love and kindness go a LONG way. Note that adult ducks will accept babies if they are acclimated slowly. Baby should be in a mesh cage to prevent harm. Ultimately one of your hens will take it under wing. It takes a week or so.

    Thank you, they are spoiled as you can see the little brown and yellow one sleeping on my lap. The little one in the towel is actually really black.
