Ducklings And Chicks: Splish Splashin And Quackalakin With The Flock

This just in- a heartwarming story straight off the Imgur press. This original poster impulsively got 4 ducklings and 26 chicks a month ago and has been surprised at how much personality these little guys truly contain! OP then provides us with some super fun facts that we have compiled for you here to enjoy and learn from! 

Ducks feet has no nerves or blood vessels, meaning that their feet do not feel the cold. Their feathers are waterproof due to a waxy oil they produce and spread throughout when preening. Pekins are too chunky to fly (like many domesticated poultry birds) but they don't care. They have very good vision and see in color. They also have 3 eyelids, one of which is clear and acts like goggles so they can keep their eyes open underwater!

Woah! These facts are clearly of the fun variety. Keep reading for more!

    A flock will come up with a unique sound as a name for their favorite human! They give you a name and if you don't think that's adorable and want to be named by a bunch of birds we don't think we can be friends .
