I got a duckling!





Isn't he cute? His name is Aflac! He's so funny. He follows me everywhere! I'm not sure what kind it is. I got him from a pet store, and they said he turned blue when he gets older. I figured it was ok to get him since my mom has a duck and has everything he needs. He doesn't ever shut-up though!!!

wow! i was wondering if ducks make good pets? Can you keep them inside with you or do they pretty much have to be outside pets? I saw someone's website that made diapers for theirs so that they could live inside...haha.

Ducks, if kept from babies are very loyal pets. They can be kept inside or out. Mine is in a small rabbit cage until it is old enough to go outside. It is defensless from cats and our other fowl right now.

Cute pics! Do you let your duckling go in water? I know they love to swim.

Thanks. He has a small container for water that he sits in. Captive bred ducklings (sans parents) cannot swim because their feathers lack the oils to make them water proof. They get these when their mom grooms them. He will be able to go in deeper water when he gets his adult feathers.
