    First an explaination. The aquarium is too small for a milk jug so I decided to cut a head size hole in a water bottle for my three call ducks to drink out of. It seemed to work just fine until I turned my back for a second!

    I knew this one was trouble before he even hatched! His egg rolled all over the place. His name is Ducky Daddles" from the children's book. I took him out to cut the bottle from around him and he just popped out. I replaced the bottle with a small waterer. Now they all put one foot in and push with the other so they are going around and around the waterer like a merry go round. I would have never believed how funny ducks could be.

    That is so cute. They can get uo to such strange things.

    It reminds me of a photo my daughter took a few years ago- she was giving her duckling a drink and it jumped into the glass.
