    I've never had ducklings before, just chicks. I took them outside today to play in the sun and grass. What they wanted most was to crawl up on my lap and snuggle. Who knew? They would play in the grass and dip their face into the water bowl but after that they would return for snuggle time and then off to play a bit more.

    Aren't they amazing? I just had my first duckling like that a few months ago. I raised some before but never that friendly. Once I bonded with them however, I just fell totally in love with ducks! I have chickens too but oh my.... ducks are so very special. I'm in love!

    I wonder how long it will last they are only 5 days old. Will they still be friendly when they grow up?

    My duck is super cuddly! It really doesn't get better than having sweet duckies opposed to a bunch of scaredy-ducks! Do you give them treats while they are on you? It helps encourage them! Congrats on your ducklings btw! Would love to see a pic :)
