    Carlton was an only chick born with 5 ducks and a goose. How do you convince a chicken he is indeed a chicken, and not a duck? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] ** few weeks ago [​IMG] ** few weeks before that [​IMG] ** younger [​IMG] ** when we brought them home [​IMG] [​IMG] Yes.. He's a duck. He spends every rainy day soaked to the skin just to hang with his girls. He mates them. He does not roost. Been told we should have called him Chuck (because he's part chicken, part duck). :gig

    Perches on the side of the swimming pool :gig

    He does stand out in the rain with them - getting soaked. Despite how unhappy he looks - he stays with his girls! :rolleyes:

    He's as cute as a button - a big red button. What a great guy!

    Thank you :love I get such a kick out of the whole thing. I think he could be the subject of a children's book about differences :) He looked so disgusted when I told him to mate Janet instead [​IMG] :lau

    Oh yes. He could choose to be what he is supposed to be. Was with the chickens since week 8. :rolleyes:

    He has choices. He CHOOSES to be a duck :gig
