I’ve always had a thing for ducks. When we lived in cities, I used to carry around a bag of duck food in my car in case of random duck encounters and made sure to take our dogs for walks in areas of high duck traffic 😂 I love the way they waddle around — little webbed feet atop baby carrots legs. Love the strikingly vibrant colors of their feathers and the preposterous sounds that come out of their mouths. Since we moved to a rural place where we can keep more animals, my duck obsession has subsided some — maybe shifted to become a nascent chicken obsession.
Anyways, was reminded again of duck beauty the other weekend at my in-law’s ranch where ducks, swans, and peacocks roam — a bird lover’s dream! Would love to try to raise some to waddle around one of our ponds someday 😍 #ducksofinstagram
