While I was looking for a cute chicken video yesterday, I got side-tracked into watching cute duckling videos. It doesn’t take much to distract me with ducklings! Chicks are sweet, but ducklings make me hurt inside, they’re so adorable. Seriously, ducks are the things I love most in this world.
So on to the videos!
I miss being followed by ducklings….
I miss watching them play in a tub of water. When they get overexcited, they jump out of the tub and go racing around in circles, splattering water everywhere! So funny!
I miss watching them play with my dog. Her best friend was a tan & white Indian Runner duck….
Most of all, I miss just holding them and watching them trust me enough to fall asleep in my hand.
In case you can’t tell, once the chickens are grown up and settled in, we’re also getting ducks. Ducks are the greatest slug control a garden could ever have! I can’t find a video to illustrate it, but my duck Bastien used to take walks with me in my garden. He’d stroll beside me like the old friend he was, chatting away about the plants and the slugs. Occasionally, his wife would get jealous of his attention to me, and call him back to her. He’d wait until she was distracted, then sneak away to finish our garden inspection tour.
And this is just simply awesome:
