We have a beautiful mallard duck since 1 day old. We fell in love with her from the beginning. She is 15 weeks old now and is an integrated part of our family. She wakes my sons up every morning to go to school. She loves to play games with them. We have her in diapers and she is doing great. She is so affectionate and sweet. She comes to work with me every day - she basically goes everywhere with us. She is loved by all!!! She brings smiles and laughs everyday!!! She is absolutely adorable!!! If you really want to do this you have to know one thing ... They are a big mess!!! I mean really messy!!! They need a lot of attention. They depend on you for company. Chloe is with us all day. we do leave for a few hours here and there when we go places we can't bring her and she handles it well. We would never leave her all day or over night though. My boys tell me everyday how much they love Chloe and thank G-d for her in their prayers at night. My husband and I do the same. She is a great fit for us even with all the work. We are just crazy about her!!
