They are Pekin ducks, domestic ducks, having wings but they cannot fly.
Some people buy them as cute, fuzzy, yellow little ducklings and think they can release them to a nearby pond when they are full grown. But they are mistaken. Domestic ducks cannot stay safe in the wild. They can't fly to get away from predators.
I love how they tilt their head to see up high.They have to because their eyes are on the sides . It's a funny sight when they look up at a plane, their head is horizontal and their eye facing straight up.
Today we were up on the deck and tossed them treats of frozen corn and peas, that were thawed .
