There's an abandoned house up our road (back road, not paved or nothin') and it's got a huge pond.
and.
there's a duck.
a little white duck.
and she's got 8 ducklings.
and i need them.
all of them.
but i don't have a pond.
and they're not wild ducks.
because wild ducks aren't white.
pekins and call ducks are white.

I.Need.Those.Ducks.

o.o

I suppose I could feed them and stuff... And maybe one day she'll come back with me.... *sigh*

So you can just take animals from the wild and keep them in your yard?
They're not a wild breed though. What she's describing is most likely a released pet domestic duck. They're domesticated and are not designed to fend for themselves like their wild counterparts. Her taking them in would actually be the best thing for the duck and her ducklings.

I'm thinking they're Calls because the ducklings are dark. Is that right? I didn't find any Pekin ducklings that were dark, they were all yellow/buff.

The dad could have been a mallard, and his genes would play a part in the ducklings looking like that.
