A wonderful story of friendship between a man and... a duckling.
When attempting to hatch chicken eggs, the man got an incredible surprise: this fuzzy little duckling!
However, ducks are social creatures, so he knew that he needed to hand raise this little guy and make sure that he was well-socialized.
At 41 days old, Peeps couldn’t fit in his daddy’s beard any longer, but he still hung out on his shoulder when he could.
Watching TV and nap time were the best for this duo.
The man who raised Peeps still can’t quite determine if the duckling is a male or female, since the tail feathers haven’t come in yet. They should in about 4-6 more weeks. But, while he waits, he is incubating more duck eggs, hoping to form a little family for Peeps so he wouldn’t be lonely.
