    Hi there!

    Just curious, does anyone have a duck that sleeps completely stretched out with its head resting on the floor? My guy, Ralphy, has done this since he was about 3 days old. He's 8 weeks now, and still does it when he's really relaxed and comfy lol. Never knew ducks slept like this, but it's hilarious...

    That's pretty hilarious. All he needs to do is stick his feet out back and he'd lie like my dog did before his amputation!

  3. Very normal. My Call Duck sleeps like that too. Lucky looks like road kill all stretched out with one leg out snoozing!
    How cute!
    Gotta LOVE ducks!! I do!
