Reasons Why Everyone Should Have Ducks (Tweets)

A new day, a new twitter discovery. This time, we found a twitter account dedicated to nothing but reasons why everyone should have ducks, and we are so not mad at it. Yes, we agree. everyone should have a duck? Why, you ask? Well, take a look at these pictures and videos, and you'll understand perfectly why ducks are a necessary animal in every household. 

No words are necessary to understand. Ducks are just... cute and tiny and adorable and truly surprisingly friendly. And apparently, ducks like dogs, which is always good to know. So, if you have a friend who is contemplating getting a duck, here is how to convince them.

Also, convince your friend to get a cat at same time. Just because.

Finally! A live-action remake that's true to the original! It's the re-make we all need! Thank you, Disney, for this masterpiece. It may be old but the nostalgia feels still kick in and we can't get over how adorable these ducklings are! Who knew, the already perfect theme song 'Ducktales' is made even more perfect by adding real ducklings to the mix! 

Who else is singing along right now?

Yes, this video is old but it's simply pure gold. And deserves another round in the spotlight due to this little duckling's determination! 

Meet Charley, the adorable duckling! We're pretty sure Charley is no longer a duckling but we are confident that Charlie is still heckin' adorable. Ducks are interesting birds, you may not think of them as something people would have as a pet but from what we've seen, it seems like they make excellent companions! Always so cheery and energetic! 

We admit it, we love ducks. There, now you have it on record.

The purest journey - this video is going to make your heart warm with joy. All the way from egg to hatching to the duckling's first movement and sounds, and the sweet dog is there all the way through it, watching and sniffing, not leaving the duckling's side even at night, making sure to protect this fragile little newborn.

This is one of the gentlest and most careful and loving pups that we've ever seen. Clearly, it understands somehow that this baby is something precious that needs to be protected. And it's obvious that the duckling knows the dog wants nothing but good for it too. Even their snuggles are gentle and loving.

An older video but it's one of those videos that just make your heart burst and you can feel the tugging of the corner of your lips pull up into a goofy smile. That is the power of wholesome and adorable animals doing wholesome and adorable things. Even something like staying awake,

We've all been there, trying to stay focus and awake during a boring class. We all can agree that is tough! That's why we can't really blame Dexter, the little duckling, for struggling to fight off the Zzz's. We absolutely adore how little Dexter shakes his head trying to keep himself awake -- even a duckling who has no idea what school even is is aware of how painfully boring it can be! 

Hang in there, fellow students, you can do it! Don't be like Dexter, but do get some needed rest.

This is simply too cute! Whilst in a mint garden, this little ducking has promptly fallen asleep after a flower hat is placed on its head. 

The duckling was born on the Mother The Moutain Farm, where two young women work on their organic farm on Bundjalung Country / Byron Bay, Australia. In the video description, Mother The Mountain Farm left this beautiful and inspiring message, "We are the third generation of our family to care for this land and are always so grateful as we pick fruit from the trees planted by our grandparents and tended by our parents. Grateful to still be nurtured by those who are no longer here. We hope that when we are gone, those who come after will still be fed by the meaning of our actions, the trees we plant, the land we care for. "

You can follow Mother The Mountain Farm on Instagram for more about their care for animals during their journey. And of course, more adorable ducklings!

It's summer and we're definitely feeling the heat these days! What better way to combat the heat than to treat yourself to something cool and refreshing?

And nothing, and we mean nothing, says summer treat like watermelon does! Seems like just about every species loves a good watermelon! These ducklings, and ducks, are absolutely no exception to that. 

We hope you're keeping cool and enjoying a fresh, juicy watermelon every now and then!

After losing her baby chicks, this mother hen has taken in seven little critters into her care: 5 ducklings and 2 Totenko Fowl chicks. This mama has her work cut out for her! 

Protective and caring, this mother hen is turning out to be the best mother these other little critters could've ever hoped for! 

Don't believe us? Watch how these chicken dotes on the ducklings and how the ducklings flock to her -- instead of their actual birth mother. 

Maternal instinct comes to naturally this caring chicken.

All of her comics, as devastating as they may be, are in hopes to spread awareness and send a message to the world. 

For example, her previous comic was created in order to shed light on some real problems -- this time, the victim being birds and culprit? Plastic.

You've probably heard the phrase, "lucky duck," and in this case, these ducklings really are quite lucky! Terry Hill and Cathy Hogg, who both run the New Forest Home Care Companions in Fordingbridge, heard a mother duck crying and sprung straight into action! 

Mr Hill told BBC News, "Every year there's a duck that nests in the neighbor's garden and every year they come down the road to a stream in our garden but there are also two drains outside. Usually we put cardboard over the drain to stop them falling down but this year we missed it. We took up the two manhole covers and used a hanging basket to get two out. The mother wouldn't leave and stayed there until we got them all. Initially she was alarmed but then she realized were trying to help her."

Thank you Mr Hill and Mrs Hogg's for your quick response! Watch the video below:
