Chloe, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chloe
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Muscovy duck
Home: The Woodlands, Texas, USA
 
   Chloe 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!
