Look at these babies!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I know this site is for kitties, but I wanted you all to see the duck I have been feeding since last summer and her five baby ducklings. Mommy duck has had a hard time -- she had six babies last June 6, 2004. A couple were eaten by a snapping turtle, and the rest were hit by passing cars down by the creek thus allowing her to only have one duck left; she lost her left foot over the winter due to an infection from a fishing wire being wrapped around it cutting off the circulation, thus causing it to fall off. She now has a stump for a leg and quite frankly gets along better since all the infection is out of her. Then after her ducklings hatched Saturday, June 4, a 4 1/2 foot black snake tried to attack her and the babies and wrapped itself around Mommy Duck's head. A couple of people heard her and managed to get the snake away from her neck and killed it. I feel like she is part of my family after all of the turmoil we have been through with her and wanted to share her "new family" with everyone! Enjoy!

Those turtles can be surprisingly nasty!

But those babies are so sweet looking.

If there is anything remotely approaching the cuteness of kittens, it's baby ducklings. Way too cute. The only thing that could make those pictures better would the the addition of some kittens and puppies. Too cute!!!
