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:

Patients at the University of Rochester Thompson Health hospital are treated to the adorable parade every year, as they wrote in this cute facebook post: "Every year, without fail, a mama duck chooses one of the enclosed courtyards at our M.M. Ewing Continuing Care Center to lay her eggs and take care of her babies. She lets us know when she's ready to go by tapping on the glass, and this morning, it was time for this annual rite of spring".

Dog Becomes a Single Dad To Nine Orphaned Baby Ducks And They Make The Perfect Family

Single parenthood can be tough, but rewarding. Just ask Fred, the adorable senior labrador, who has taken a brood of ducklings orphaned under his paw after their mom disappeared few weeks ago. 

The ten-year-old pooch is the resident pet at Mountfitchet Castle near Stansted, Essex, in the UK, where a member of staff found the lost siblings waddling around the battlements. The Staff at the popular tourist attraction said they were very worried about the ducklings, but Fred immediately took to them and has been babysitting ever since. Fred definitely proves that you can be a perfect dad even at grand old age of ten. The staff says that the babies 'absolutely love him'.  Take a look at some of their precious photos together.
