    I just might! :p Also, it's funny...this little girl seems to be imprinted on me, after all. Her mirror won't do the trick, I gotta be there or else she cries. That shouldn't be possible, I thought?

    Perfect for when Wobbles is in full on testosterone male mating I must reproduce mode because I am a man duck and I want to pass on my genes.

    oh, sweet little gurl bird. I don't want her to be sad when you are not there. Even if she imprints on you, is there a chance she will bond with Wobs?

    One of the first things to go in the spring molt are the wing and tail feathers. My living room looks like a duck exploded. My backyard, with the main flock looks like there is still snow on the ground (it's all feathers!). One of my drakes has a mainly white head now, since he's blown out most of his colored head feathers.
    I suspect Dappy is in a spring molt - the medication may just be a red herring in this case!

    How old is she? I've heard they can imprint several days after hatch, especially if they're an only duck.

    I'm not sure, I think she's 2-3 days old? Well, 4 now. I just didn't think it was possible. I'm glad, but I'm just surprised, is all!

    I think since she has seen other ducks, her identity part of the imprint is going to be duck (a good thing). But if you are the first non-sibling she has spent any real time with, you might just be "mom" [​IMG]
