I thought a chick would be a chick, but no. They're different then the chickens. They have a quieter little peep, they stick together in a little flock all the time, and these ones are super scared of us. They huddle in the corner of their cage when we come near and run evasive maneuvers when we try and pick them up.
Random duck fact: Ducklings don't make their own oil for waterproofing. They rub on their mama to get it and so, if they're mother isn't around, you need to be careful with your ducklings around water, because they can get tired and drown! Who knew! Don't worry, we're very careful with our little flock.
We took them outside the other day, Life got such a kick out of it!
