||Two years old|
||Mallard, Pekin Duck|
two ducks make such a funny couple. The difference in breeds is
no problem, they don't seem to care at all. They had even begun a nest
one year, which sadly, never worked out. They are so much fun to have
as pets! They have hilarious personalities and are exact opposites.
Lizzie, the white one, is big and fat and obnoxious. She quacks loud and
is pushy - she always has to have her way. And really, she is so funny,
who would resist? The size difference between them doesn't seem to
matter, just her personality!
Mister the mallard, however, is shy and quiet, and is usually content
just to follow Lizzie in her adventures. He is able to fly, and
explores the outside of the fence when he has a chance, until the
persistent, frantic quacks of Lizzie bring him to return to his mate.
And he flies quickly back and is her shadow again - it is obvious that
he loves her, even when she's bossy. And the way she quacks when he is
away show she loves him, too!
These unique pets are perfect for anyone with room in their backyard,
and who don't mind sometimes getting ordered around by a pretty, bossy
