Ducks by Bon-AppetEats Ducks by Bon-AppetEats
On my way back to my apartment from Michael's (everything was on sale *flails*), I came across the mama duck and baby ducks that live at the end of our building. :)

Right after I took this, one of the babies ran up to me, tugged on my shoelace, and then they all took off.

I might have squee'd a bit. Maybe. Possibly. :>


Sorry for the picture quality - I snapped this with my cell phone.

Until they poop all over everything and then sit in front of your car when you try to leave. >.> lol

You can eat them? I heard they tasted awful.

Sometimes they can get to be a little greasy, but all duck is that way.. If they are prepared right though, they are awesome.

Ah, yeah, it is. That's why when duck is prepared badly, it's really, really bad. XD I just heard these weren't fit to eat since they're really tough.

Then it'd be a $500 fine for each of the ones they hit. :P Everyone pretty much stops when these guys cross the street.

I remember one time on my way to the dentist my mom had to stop the car to let a cute family of ducks like this one cross the street, it was so cute!

I do that all the time here. If you hit one, it's a $500 fine and they know it - they'll sit down in the middle of the road and make you wait for them to move. XD

When I went to this competition, my teammates and I were all "Ducklings" following our leader, we had names and a roll call and everything~ It was so fun! This picture reminds me of that :)

I got chased by a duck once. I think getting to close to its babies might've been part of the reason X3

I got chased by a goose when I was young. I'm still wary of them 20 years later. lol

You'd be surprised, but the talons that ducks have can actually hurt you if the duck is pissed enough. My dad got laid open by one of our dillies when he was trying to check her nest for snakes one year. We still don't use gloves, though, because that was the only time it happened. Their bites aren't usually that bad either, but just try not to catch them on a bad day.

^^; I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you upset or anything. I just wanted to make sure you knew. It's like a baby crocodile. Cute, usually harmless, but potentially able to make you get stitches.

Lol. Sometimes, no. But, it can be pretty badass to explain. Like, one of our less people-friendly dillies bit me so hard once that I had a scar shaped like the Nike symbol on my thumb for about a year. I was maybe 12, so it faded pretty fast, but my dad might still have his scar from when he broke up a drake fight. He just won't know which one it is because he scars worse than anyone I know, and he sometimes gets injuries without noticing. xD

There have been quite a few bunches of baby ducks around my complex. These are the youngest ones I think. :) The others are nearly grown now.

I've seen a group of them once wait for the crosswalk sign to change before crossing the street. It's scary how smart these guys are. ;P
