    We were fortunate to receive these 13 rescue baby ducks, I don't know anything about ducks, either, so we just put them in our pond.

    Anyone know what type they might be?

    After about a week, they'll come up to me and eat from my hands now! hehe it's so cute, they come up near our house when they hear me speaking now!! I think they've taken me in as mommie...

    tfpets Mmm, tastes like chicken

    Yes, they look like muscovies! So, as they get older, they will have such pretty bodies, and be pretty large too, and, well, say goodbye to those smooth faces! They'll have the bumpy skinned reddish muscovy faces! What cuties!
