Ducks are the new chickens.
When you find yourself questioning the ethical production and nutritional quality of commercial eggs, but you find chickens too reminiscent of T-Rexes, or you simply want something cooler and cuter ... or your house is too quiet, your pond too empty ... or you're looking for something to add to your growing homestead, or for a way to start hobby farming ... or, by mysterious circumstances, a very fluffy and very yellow duckling has very suddenly materialized in your hands, and you have just fallen into a pond and, through a shroud of rising mist and the distant bellowing of toads, find yourself at the mercy of watermelon-starved ducks ...
Congratulations, and welcome to Quackingdom.
