Duck Life: Experiencing Water For the First Time

Okay, so anyone who knows me knows that I am fascinated by ducks.  I think they have the coolest life EVER.  When you’re not flying, you float around in the water and occasionally gripe at other ducks.  You find an attractive duck woman to settle down with and make beautiful little ducks.  Then you float around some more and gripe at other ducks some more.  Yeah, I know there’s that whole duck season thing, but…  If there’s such a thing as reincarnation, I want to come back as a duck.

So I thoroughly enjoyed this video of ducks experiencing water for the first time. From the GrindTV website:

You can lead neglected ducks to water, but you can’t make them swim. That seemed to be the case, initially anyway, with dozens of waterfowl in a video that has gone viral during the past few days (posted below). These ducks, rescued victims of a hoarding case, had never experienced water and were gently coaxed into a small pond by their rescuers. As viewers can see, the birds eventually realized that taking a bath, or a leisurely swim, is one of life’s great pleasures.

The birds are among 160 ducks, geese, turkeys and chickens that had been living in squalid conditions with a New York hoarder who apparently did not realize how adversely filth and severe crowding–some had been living in crates–had affected the birds.
