Do We Call the Babies Dickens or Chucks?


My duck, she is so confused. She’s sitting on a nest of chicken eggs and a golf ball. AND NO WONDER SHE IS SO BEWILDERED. LOOK AT THAT!

Cover the children’s eyes!!

Cover your own eyes!!

It’s so unnatural.

And disturbing!

I can’t believe you’re still looking!!!! YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED!

    OMG – I’m so traumatized I won’t be able to sleep tonight! Or for the next 5 years! :hissyfit: :devil:

  2. Sheila Z says:

    Same thing was happening at my house. The ducks hated the rooster. I gave my four egg laying ducks their own pen for privacy and bought a four more ducklings this spring in hopes that there will be a male of their own species for them.

  3. Tracey In Paradise,Pa. says:

    what is going on my male ducks will not leave my hens alone?? crazy!!

  4. Grace Reynolds says:

    No one’s to blame, it’s Spring Fever. Now, who led who on? ‘)

  5. CindyP says:

    ๐Ÿ˜† Really wondering now! Didn’t know they’d try such a thing! ๐Ÿ˜†

  6. Diane says:

    That was intresting. lol. I did not know a rooster would do that or a duck would let him.

  7. Johanna says:

    My duck keeps flirting with the boss rooster, Egglebert. It cracks me up, but she definitely knows he’s the top guy and she totally flatters him!

  8. Christine says:

    Hey, at least we know she’s been accepted as part of the flock…

  9. Carol Langille says:

    MY EYES!!!! MY EYES!!!!!
    Seriously, could the duck lay fertile eggs from the rooster? Or would it just not take? If you get a viable egg and it hatches…the real questions is will it quack or cluck?
    I can see the headlines now….”Rural West Virginia Farmer Breds First Inter-Species Fowl As Her Fans Look On.”
    And look we did!
    Keep us posted!

  10. Deborah R says:

    Oh no! If these pictures get out, they’ll generate a whole new set of West Virginia sterotypes!

  11. Cousin Sheryl says:

    Oh no! I can’t take duck/chicken porn this early in the morning (early for me). ROTFLMBO! Maybe that’s how they get those Tur-Duc-ens in the freezer at the store! he he

  12. trish robichaud says:

    wow, now all you need is a turkey in there to get paula deens turduckin….. lol. cant wait to see what happens with this can call it “as the feathers fly”..

  13. Shirley T says:

    I can just hear the duck saying to the rooster, “will you still respect me tomorow?”

  14. Shirley T says:

    and the rooster saying to the duck,” of course baby,trust me, I thinks I loves you.”

  15. Drucillajoy says:

    Barnyard porn! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  16. Drucillajoy says:

    from the duck’s perspective, hasn’t she been sodomized? First she sits on chicken eggs & a golf ball, now she has a rooster on top of her….she needs an help & maybe an attorney.

  17. Nancy says:

    hahahaha, yup, the same thing happens here! It’s usually the duck going after the geese and hens though!

  18. Melinda says:

    Now, I really am curious. Will the eggs be able to develop if Mr. Casanova there did his business?

  19. marymac says:

    Is this for real?? I thought only people get confused. Wonder if anyone ever hatched any thing like this….OMG!!!

  20. Nancy in Iowa says:

    OK, I was wrong, I slept fine last night. And here I am again – looking, staring, aghast at the things you allow on your farm!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  21. Becky says:

    I call it a very confused rooster! tee hee

  22. Becky says:

    Oh, and no wonder the chickens don’t like her. She’s movin’ in on their territory! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  23. Linda Goble says:

    It could happen I guess the the other day in the news I saw a Zebra mated with a donkey a lion with a tiger a polar bear with a brown bear and a dolphin with a whale. That sure would be funny to see what it would turn out to look like. It quacks me up :duck:

  24. Kris says:

    I feel so…….violated!!! :bugeyed:

  25. Cindy says:

    That is one horny little rooster! And poor duck….guess she will take what she can get…even if it’s not from her own kind.
    Now if you had turkeys…you could end up with a turducken!

  26. Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage says:

    OMG…I’m still wiping tears from my eyes…that is hilarious!!!!! The poor duck.

  27. heidiannie says:

    I guess it is natural if it is happening on all of your farms- but I don’t think I wanted to know about it.

  28. Marilyn says:

    We have a tiny banty rooster that lost his girls last year to a night raid. The other full size hens want nothing to do with him. He wisely stays clear of the full size roosters.
    Now it is not uncommon for chickens to sit on a sheep or goat that is laying down. However this tiny little rooster has taken a particular shine to a shy little yearling ewe. Your rooster and duck aren’t nearly as odd a couple as this rooster and his ewe. Talk about lost causes…his doing the breeding thing on top her head is, well….I just sigh and walk away.
    p.s….chicken/duck cross won’t result in viable eggs

  29. Suzanne says:

    Spring fever is going on here in ID as well. But with the duck matting the chickens, the problem was he drowned a chicken so he got his pool taken away. I think freecycle will have a new listing soon. I’m glad I am not the only one with messed up ducks.

  30. princessvanessa says:

    Tell the children that the rooster found out that the duck wasn’t feeling well and is pushing her to the veterinarian hospital to have a check up.
    A play on the old joke about one dog pushing the other to Mt. Sinai Hospital.

  31. scorwin says:

    Oh dear, Poor Ducky; now she’s going to need therapy!!!! Hey wait, was she stuttin’ her stuff!!! Well, it’s spring I guess!

  32. CherShots says:

    Oh ~ like they don’t window peek at you!!

  33. SuzzyQ says:

    I prefer to think she is just laughing at him!

  34. jean says:

    I’m not sure what I could add here except that I am just amazed! It was like a train wreck – I just couldn’t look away.

  35. Jo says:

    ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜ฎ :help: :shocked:

  36. farmershae says:

    Oh my! That rooster is covering ALL the bases! We had a rooster that decided the guinea hens were fair game. I was okay with that, but when the Black Jersey Giant went after one of my banty Cochins, that’s when I decided they’d crossed the line. It just seemed wrong to me. He went in the freezer the next day (that was the plan all along, but after violating little Foofy Butt, his time was done…)

  37. juststartn says:

    Our little duck is lonesome too. Only the rooster will have nothing to do with. The ganders, on the other hand, well, they “do” have to share the three geese.

    I try not to watch when it is going on.

    We’ve ordered some ducklings, so we’re hoping for a mate for her (we had one,he committed suicide by minivan last spring).

  38. Nita in South Carolina says:

    Oh please. After the Clover Episodes, my shock-o-meter is set pretty high.

    Although I, too, am wondering if it’s possible that this could result in some offspring for Ms. Duck? A whole new sitcom – She’s a duck! She’s a single mom! Maybe she can get a job at a diner and sing in bars during her days off. . . .

  39. Darlene in North Ga says:

    We had a young male Chihuahua. And a VERY, uhm, “needy” female cat. Until the tax money came in and we could afford to have them fixed, the constant refrain was: “Baxter, Get.Off.The.CAT!” lol

  40. Lauren says:

    Our male rouen does that to our chickens too! Including our sweet little black frizzle. It’s a lot more scary when the chicken practically disappears under the girth of the duck! We should call them Dickens. More refined.

  41. Lauren says:

    ps for the record- we keep the ducks and chickens separate now ๐Ÿ˜€

  42. princessvanessa says:

    OMG – Darlene in North Ga., I’m glad I didn’t have any liquids in my mouth or I would have “snorted” them. That is too darn funny….โ€œBaxter, Get.Off.The.CAT!โ€

  43. Juliebug says:

    We had a duck that was hatched by a banty hen, and naturally, it imprinted on chickens. When the little drake matured, all he wanted to do was chase the hens. Poor duck. (Poor hens!)
