Ducklings And Chicks: Splish Splashin And Quackalakin With The Flock

This just in- a heartwarming story straight off the Imgur press. This original poster impulsively got 4 ducklings and 26 chicks a month ago and has been surprised at how much personality these little guys truly contain! OP then provides us with some super fun facts that we have compiled for you here to enjoy and learn from! 

Ducks feet has no nerves or blood vessels, meaning that their feet do not feel the cold. Their feathers are waterproof due to a waxy oil they produce and spread throughout when preening. Pekins are too chunky to fly (like many domesticated poultry birds) but they don't care. They have very good vision and see in color. They also have 3 eyelids, one of which is clear and acts like goggles so they can keep their eyes open underwater!

Woah! These facts are clearly of the fun variety. Keep reading for more!

It is no secret that cats are brilliant creatures. (At least we think so!) Part of their extensive intelligence stems from their inquisitive nature. Have you ever noticed how your cat becomes curious and must investigate everything new that is in his vicinity? This kitty is absolutely mesmerized by this group of awwdorable little chicks. 

At some point, this curious kitten's orange friend comes to join in on the fun. Both kittens carefully examine the unknown as the little chickies flock around their enclosed casing. Our main kitten friend is very thorough in his investigation. He checks them out from all angles through the glass. From above, from the side, there is no angle that he does not carefully examine!

Enjoy this awwdorable exchange between two kittens and a flock of sweet itty bitty chickies!

OK, these owls are obviously telling this man he's been accepted to Hogwarts but no one else seems to realize it. When it comes to owls, the Eurasian eagle-owl is known as Europe's largest owl! 

Vroege Vogels, a Dutch radio and television show about nature was surprised to hear that these large owls have made a home for themselves in one man's apartment window! A Eurasian eagle and her three giant owl chicks! And whenever the man watches television, the owls all watch with them! 

Ah, to be a Dutchman living in an art studio apartment with a family of Eurasian eagle-owls nesting in the planter outside the window. Isn't that the dream? But alas, the city is no place for these majestic owls, the owls were relocated to a near shelter soon after this video was released and have now been released into the wild where they belong. Still, it's a lovely and unusual story that makes us smile.

Here is something you don't tend to see every day, a rabbit hanging out with a bunch of baby chicks! Seems like a scene out of a children's book! What could be going through this rabbit's mind as he sits happily beside all these baby chicks? We have some ideas. One, this could be the result of not delivering Easter eggs on time. Or perhaps this rabbit now sees itself as a parent. 

We don't know much about what's going on in this video but we do know that it makes me smile, and feel quite peaceful within. We're hoping it does the same for you.

Imgur User Provides Entertaining Commentary While Discovering Jacana Bird

Birds are an interesting species, there are about 400 billion birds on the planet. That's right, if they wanted, they could attack us, win, and take over the world. And who knows, maybe that is their plan. If you dive into that thought a bit deeper, with 5 billion people on the planet, this would amount to 40 to 60 birds per bird. So, yeah, they would definitely win. And one type of bird, the Jacana bird, may just freak out a majority of those people with its terrifying spider/bird hybrid legs, but the truth is way cuter than anyone would expect. 

When an Imgur user discovered the truth behind these seemingly freaky birds, they decided to share their knowledge with the world, and we are grateful.

This entertaining and thought-provoking commentary by Imgur user yourfriendlyneighbourhoodtzimisce:

Get ready. Because this video has double the tiny and therefore double the cute. It's a video of itty bitty kittens meeting and hanging out with an itty bittier chicken. Yeah, we know, the cuteness is overwhelming just thinking about it. 

But you must watch this video with us, you can't not. There are only so many times in our lives where we could come across a friendship this precious. So, we are all going to take a deep breath and watch this video despite the fear of a cuteness overload, and we will appreciate this double-dose of cuteness together.

Handsome Doggos Getting All The Chicks

Anyone who has ever walked a dog knows that dogs are absolute magnets of attention. People stop, people wanna pet, sometimes you'll even start up a conversation with another dog owner and well, since your dogs are friends now, you kinda have to be friends too. Maybe you'll even find your future lady companion through one of these dog-initiated meetings.  

Basically, dogs are the best chick magnets, but this time, we mean it literally. Dogs are total BFFs with chicks. Tiny yellow chicks. And it's so adorable it hurts. So, yes, even literally, dogs are better chick magnets than all of us.
