Ducks in a row
Originally uploaded by Marketeer
I know that this community isn't very active anymore, but I thought I'd share my collection of holiday rubber ducks. I think that they all came from World Market over the past several years. There were several new ducks there this year, include the Hanukah duck in the front.

I hope your holidays are just ducky!

Introducing 3 day old ducklings to a broody hen? [11 Sep 2008|10:41pm]

my only duck became very broody so i bought some fertile eggs off of ebay....

thing is somthing got all but 2 of the eggs, i have no idea what did it but after that i built a little fort knocts around her which i leave open during the day.

 fearing none would hatch i ordered some ducklings from mc murry to sneak under her (i have done this before with broody chickens) they came tuesday

today was the hatch date but i was giving them till tommorow (the 12th) to hatch because they were tucked under her halfway through day 1.

sadly i took a nap today becuase i have a cold... i woke up after dark to the sound of my duck fussing. another egg was gone and i found it..... it had a duckling in it ready to hatch the yolk sack torn open D:
(i cried)

well tonight was the night to give her the ducklings after dark. but i decided to start with 2 as i could bear to have them all hurt or lost. the cage i built around her is fairly snug so the babies cannot be more than 5 inches away from her.
 for the most part she ignores them, if they get in front of her she like "nibbles" at them, i mean she is not hurting them but her actions to me seem like she does not want them.... and they are sitting next to not under her...and if they hear my voice they try to get out :C

so in the end my questions are:

is her nibbling at them rejection or just confusion, or just because i got her worked up? (she hates me)
have there been cases of ducks adopting other ducklings?
what are the chances of her accepeting these babies as her own?

i did NOT intend to raise these 11 ducks myself, i intended for her to do it!

Million Dollar Duck Race [05 Aug 2008|03:36pm]

[ mood | excited ]

25,000 rubber duckies will be let loose tomorrow at the Brooklyn Bridge in a race for charity (Special Olympics). I'm going to be sponsoring at least one duck ($5) and possibly a Quack Pack ($25). I hope you will consider it as well. I'm then going to go to and watch the action!

so i have been doing some duck rescue lately... [16 Jun 2008|03:38am]

[ mood | amused ]

i haven't posted here in a while... but i just had to share what is going on with me these days...

last summer i took in an arthritic Pekin duck named "Three". he has a degenerative arthritic issue that is slowly taking away is mobility... sad, i know, but i am doing everything i can for him.
and then a few weeks ago i got a call to go pick up his siblings Four and Five. they were in terrible shape. especially Four who had eye infections in both eyes AND was showing the same arthritic signs as Three.

here is the original post (warning: GRAPHIC pix of an injured duck):

so for the past few weeks i've been dealing with these Pekins and am glad to announce that the injuries are mostly cleared up... except for the arthritis thing... but i am working on it.
but you have to see what i did for Three...
if you don't have a good sense of humor, don't read this post:

Six Little Ducks [11 May 2008|09:59pm]

[ mood | ducky ]

To add to the cuteness Yahoo and Google have graced us with today, how about a song??


Six little ducks that I once knew
Fat ones, skinny ones, fair ones too
But the one little duck with the feather on his back
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack

Down to the river they would go
Wibble-wobble, wibble-wobble, to and fro
But the one little duck with the feather on his back
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack

Home from the river they would come
Wibble-wobble, wibble-wobble, ho-hum-hum
But the one little duck with the feather on his back
He led the others with a quack, quack, quack

My favorite version of this song is from Wee Sing. Do any of you have favorites?

My Peking Ducks are turning yellow. Like on their face, a random patch before their wing and their chests.

Anyone know why?

New here! [30 Mar 2008|12:26am]

[ mood | chipper ]

Well, this is quite an operation.

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Fred, and to be perfectly honest, I am a duck.
I understand that this is a community for people who own ducks or rubber duckies, but I don't think I should be discriminated against simply because I am one, right? :D

I'm fairly new to livejournal, and you can see my journal to find out more about me.
I love to travel though, and am currently in Ohio for Spring Break.
I was first found at the Southeastern Theatre Convention in Chattanooga, TN and came back to SC through GA. I love hottubbing with ladies, and partying, and playing hide n seek. Of course, we can't party all the time so when I'm not hiding, I'm a techie, and just do general techie-like things. My goal in life is to become a celebrity. I think I'm handsome enough, don't you?

That's me on my current place of employment's lightboard. Don't be afraid to friend me! :)

Among the virtual gifts that you can send LiveJournal users, two of the options are now a classic rubber duck and a red devil duck. I think I'll go send myself one!

Sorry if some of this is a repost, I cant remember if I ever made an entry post here. If not, here goes.

So I have two ducklings, Chip and Cody (did I mention I'm new?). Chip is the one we think might be male (simply from first impression), and Cody female (again, simply by first impression). Cody follows Chip around and is the more passive, docile out of the two, while Chip is more assertive and when feeling threatened (him or his baby sister), he'll raise himself up and attempt to 'hiss'. Both will be a month this Wednesday, if I calculated correctly, but neither really look like it :-\

We got them from Sea World, a place that sells ducks and chicks for the easter holiday, and I've been keeping them in an aquarium while they were younger with a heatlamp on at a constant (at the time even at night), and cleaned them everyday with some bathtime and occassionally (weather permitting) outside time. Now, I plan on keeping them outside while I'm gone at school (around 7am until around when it gets dark), but they're still relatively small. I heard ducks were supposed to be full-grown in thirty days, and those thirty days are going to be up in two.

I feed them before I leave, when I get home (after I feed them), and before I go to bed. They usually knock the food over and get it all over the place, and in the morning it's usually all wet and nasty (I hope this will stop once they get outside more). Is it they're not getting enough food because of how much they knock it around? Or does it take longer then thirty days to grow-up for these babies and I've just been 'living a lie'? My boyfriend (who is the babies' daddy) said that him and his friend stopped by Sea World maybe last week and the ducks they still had there were 'unhealthily fat', while our's looked healthily plump. I'm glad they're not disgustingly HUGE, but they also dont seem big enough.


Here's some Chip and Cody love for you.

Hello I'm a new member and soon-to-be-Duck-Owner come Monday (I hope!). I found this community because the other one I was apart of specialized moreso on chickens then ducks and I dont think I'm going to get my questions answered. So here goes:

Hello! [23 Feb 2008|08:00pm]

I am entirely too excited to find this community! I've been collecting duckies since 1998 (when I was in 8th grade). I've had the nickname of Ducky for just about as long. Infact, some people dont even know my real name, just that I'm usually called Ducky.

I have a large collection of duckie items. From plushies to rubber duckies and even a few glass figures. Most of my items have been given to my as gifts over the years.

Here's one of my duckies that I placed on Deviantar.
He's one of my favorites in my collection and a gift from my mother.

Hooray for duckie lovers!!!!!

The ducks have returned for the season! I took a couple pictures of them, and noticed that two of them look different from the rest. I think another sort of duck has been introduced. Most of our duckies are mallards, but these new ones are almost black, with white spots. The one I snapped a picture of, his white spot is on his chest, like a 'tuxedo' cat. If you look very closely at his head, as well, you can see that he's got that shiny green underneath all that black, like a male mallard [which is why I'm using 'he'. I don't know what gender the pretty ducky is]. The other one has some more white spots, but generally the same looking. Any ideas as to what sort of ducky they are? Here is the picture I snapped...don't mind the orange 'fencing'...they put that up during some construction to keep the wildlife safe:

*** Note: there are also some white-grey duckies. So pretty. I don't recall them being in the group before they went on their trip this winter. Maybe they picked them up somewhere?

Quack! [09 Feb 2008|01:21pm]

I must say...this community makes me incredibly happy, and I only just found it. :D

I am obsessed with duckies. Where I work [a call center in Beaverton, OR] we have a stream outside which has tons of mallards. These pretty little things come out to take over the parking lot, but somehow they all stay safe- well. Most of that is the fact that if you hit a duck intentionally or they find out about it, you get canned pretty much on the spot. We also have this thing called "duck day" where our old site director would dress up in a ducky suit and waddle around the building to hand out rubber ducks to all of our 500-1000 [depending on contracts at the time] employees. It's precious.

I have several rubber duckies at work [ganked from other employees and gifted], as well as a couple ducky plushies [one of which has bunny slippers and a bunny blanky], and painted porcelain duckies - one easter-themed, one valentine's day themed, and one rainbowy.

I love to take pictures of the duckies, especially during spring! All the ducklings are precious. I also go outside and stand with them when it rains, and they quack and look at me. They let my boyfriend pet them.

All in all, I wish I could have pet ducks, but unfortunately living in apartment buildings aren't terribly conducive to that. Ah well.

ducky pictures!Collapse )

I hope you enjoyed the pictures! I'll make sure to post any other cute ducky-related things I see.

[22 Jan 2008|05:01pm]

Hi, joined this community a few weeks ago but have kept forgetting to make a post until now, so, Hi! *waves*.

My Boyfriend and I have two ducks, Quackers and Waddles, well drakes really.

More information and picturesCollapse )

I do have a question that I hope someone could help me with. They're usually quite calm and not aggressive towards each other, not even food. Most of the time when they're in their pool, one jumps in the and the other jumps out and they take turns, no worries. But once in a while when Waddles is in there, Quackers gets in and they sort of chase each other for awhile, which is harmless.

But then Quackers manages to climb on Waddles back and uses his beak to hold is head under. As soon as we see that, one of us goes and picks Quackers up and keeps him sway from the pool until Waddles is done. When we let Quackers join him again, they're fine like nothing ever has happened. This has happened a few times, at random, and I was just wondering if anyone could explain what is going on here?
