Hello! My name is Krista and I may be one of the youngest duck owners here! I am an older teen with an indoor, spoiled, pet duck. Her name is gilberta (thought she was a boy and named her Gilbert after Gilbert Godfrey’s Aflac commercials) but she mostly goes by ducky or duck butt because she has the cutest little waddle! I have been actively stalking these threads for so long because they’re all so helpful so I figured I should make an account and join in on the conversation and maybe someone will have some clue as to what my mixed breed girl is. I have hand raised her since she hatched. I will attach photos from day 1 up to current size. She is about 3 months old now and has a LOT to say. She has a pen in my room that has her 24/7 access to food and water. I forget what brand of food I am feeding her exactly but it is one of the “flock starters” from tractor supply (I made sure it was good for ducklings too). She loves celery and scrambled eggs. I got her egg from a friend who has a large mixed breed flock. She told me she was mostly likely a runner or welsh harlequin mix. Now that she’s older, I have NO CLUE what she is and it changed by day. If anyone has any idea what she is mixed with, please leave your opinion! Thanks for reading, Krista from PA!
I don't know what she is except adorable. I think she looks like a runner duck because she is so upright and I don't see wings. We do have loads of duck people on BYC. Wish they would speak up and help you with your questions.
