Gooding and Ducklings (Muscovy Duck)

contest winner icon

Gooding is 1 year old and a Muscovy Duck. My husband and I found Gooding and her siblings, Berry and Lawrence, at a flea market last fall. All three for the very thrifty price of $10! We had always wanted to have Muscovy ducks, and found these three to be so pleasant and interesting that we have gotten two more since then. And now, we have ten more, thanks to Gooding!

Gooding and the other ducks enjoy meandering about the yard, chasing flies, dipping and dunking in any reservoir of water they can find, taunting the dogs, perching on the picnic table, and sleeping under our van.

I was very surprised to look out the kitchen window a few days ago and see 10 wee little ducklings under Gooding's protective wings! Even more shocking than the fact that she had incubated the eggs in a hidden location without our knowledge. It was that we had thought Gooding was a MALE!

I never thought of having a duck for a pet! Do they let you pet them? The babies are so sweet and fuzzy. Thanks for sharing them with us and God bless you.

Interesting that the first item under the picture of Gooding and Ducklings was a link to "roast duck"

Editor's Note: Hmmm, those are generated automatically. Sorry about that.
