    I acquired two Aylesbury ducklings just over a week ago, they were terrified of us when we got them but myself, sister and my two boys have put loads of time and love into them, my oldest son more so as he's autistic and has formed a huge bond with the ducks,

    Anyway up until last night they were still really wary of us BUT last night and this morning they allowed us to hand feed them, we are all so excited at this little breakthrough, I know it probably seems silly to you all but seeing my sons face while they hand fed was incredible [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Oh my goodness they are adorable and how sweet that bond is! I know how rewarding that process is too! Keep up the good work with those precious babies!

    Thank you, they really are starting to trust us now, it's funny every time my sons walk down the stairs the ducks go mad, I can always tell when my 6 year old is sneaking down now as the ducks tell me haha xx

    I've found that often ducklings will follow you around more than chickens. I'm not familiar with the aylesbury breed. Will have to look them up.

    Lol, "Red alert he is exiting the building, I repeat exiting the building!" They are like the cutest thing ever! So fluffy! I want ducks but as of now we just have chickens, one time we acquired two untamed silkies who went from being uncatchable to sitting on our laps. It was amazing, so I know how excited you must be feeling!

    I desperately need to get them both diaper harnesses so they can have even more freedom in the house, I'd love to have them in the front room running round with us more [​IMG]

    They really are adorable, the fluffy stage is fab but they are starting to go white now so I think they will be getting their feathers soon x

    I can highly recommend this breed, they are so so comical, both have individual personalities, quackers hops from foot to foot every morning when I get up and daffy wags her tail at me [​IMG]
