Peep!! =)

Peep is my 3.5 month old Muscovy Duck. Me and my mom took an emergency trip to South Carolina because my grandmother was in the hospital and our last day there we found a little duckling all alone. So I caught her and brought her home. We found out later that the other two ducklings were killed by a male and the mother was chased out of the apartment complex.


Peep with her family before the other ducklings got killed.


The morning I caught her.


Chilling on the bar at the bar i bartend at.


Sleeping in my lap.


She cuddles!!


Checking things out at the bar again.


Meeting one dog, he's afraid of her.


Meeting the other dog, they're best friends.


Sleeping all stretched out.


First bath!!


She still cuddles too.


Starting to get feathers!!


Multi-colored duckie!!


Loosing baby fluff too.


They're still best friends.


Flight feathers are growing in!!


Checking out her new pool!!


She likes her little dog house too


She still likes to come inside.


She learned how to get on the bed by herself.


She's so pretty!!


First time we put fish in her pool.


Her beak is starting to turn red.

There's nothing like a day in the woods.....

Re: Peep!! =)

That's great. Good job saving her. Does she fly?

I raised a bunch of ducks this year too. I was surprised by how sociable they are.

Re: Peep!! =)

Yes she does follow me and yes she does fly, but stays within eyesight. And she comes when i call her. And i'll be 21 in a little over 2 months =)
