||One year old|
||The Woodlands, Texas, USA|
is the most wonderful pet! She was hatched at the pond across the
street from where we live. She and her siblings eventually started
coming over to our yard every day for every meal. Even though the rest
of the ducks left, Chloe decided to stay and make her nest that
consisted of seventeen eggs on our front porch, and became more domesticated
than I thought a duck ever really could! She chose us, rather than we
choosing her, but boy are we glad she did!
Every day when Chloe was sitting on her nest we would go feed her and
keep her company. We would pet her, and she didn't even mind being
around our dog, when most ducks would run away! She just decided she was
our pet duck, and that was that. Her little babies did hatch, and
they're doing fine! She is a wonderful and very loved pet duck! She is a
good mom to the ducklings, too. We are so glad she chose us to be hers!
