Ridiculously handsome duck

Hi. My name is Duckee Momo.

I like to blog.

I’m a ridiculously handsome duck.

Do you want to read what I wrote?

Are you suuuure?……….Okay, I’ll show you!


Oh yes, you read that right…..eat mor beef. Beef is yummy. Ducks are not.

In addition to blogging, we can do other chores too, like picking kale from the garden.

That’s my brother Scarface sitting down below.

He has a scar on his head. I think he got in a fight with a baby chick with a sharp beak.

We love our new family, but we aren’t so sure about the other 2 pets.

Especially this one.

I hear he’s eaten over $500 worth of remote controls.

I don’t think I like him much. He’s got a big head.


We need a bigger swimming pool.

    So adorable I almost called them adorbs – but I caught myself. Seriously – the pics of them in the water dish are too cute!

  14. Gabrielle — 4/24/13 @ 5:29 pm

    They are so precious! They remind me of the duck I had as a little girl. *sigh*

  15. Mikaela Cowles — 4/24/13 @ 6:26 pm

    All I could think abut when I saw the duck on your keyboard was, “Damn. I hope it didn’t poop.”

    So cute though! What a great blogger friend you have. Will you be eating lots of duck eggs in a bit?

  16. Christina — 4/24/13 @ 9:11 pm

    OMG! Sooooooooooooo cute! I remember one time, just about this time of year, I went into the farm store in the area and they had a trough of black baby ducklings. The were all asleep in a pile and their breathing had entrained… the entire pile was breathing together! So the pile expanded and contracted visibly with each breath. It was ALL I could do to walk away and not buy them all, I wanted them so badly.

    Thanks for the laugh. Great Pics.

    Future Peking Ducks Yummy!

  19. ridiculously cute! of course I couldn’t help but cringe a little at the same time questioning if the duck would do his business on your keyboard aaahh!

  20. Megan — 4/25/13 @ 3:01 pm

  26. Cheryl Chervitz — 4/26/13 @ 2:11 pm

    How incredibly cute they are. I raised 2 ducks when I lived in Arkansas and I loved it. Good luck.

  27. Cheryl Moulthrop — 4/26/13 @ 2:28 pm

    Love the ducks, and the picture of your son with the dog watching the ducks is priceless!

  28. Deborah Mele — 4/26/13 @ 2:53 pm

    I have 4 chickens who I cannot wait to see when we return to Umbria in two weeks, but after seeing your sweet ducks, I want ducks too!

  29. Martin — 4/26/13 @ 3:20 pm

    This is super cute!!!

  30. Lynn — 4/26/13 @ 3:21 pm

    Very cute! Wish we could have duckies too, but surely my dogs would eat them !

  31. Annie — 4/26/13 @ 3:31 pm

    LOL – Duckee Momo – great name. I should have known you watched that show. Have you noticed that they rerun them late at night when the kiddles are fast asleep? Hmmm, now why would they do that?

  32. Songkanh Phousanouray — 4/26/13 @ 4:19 pm

    Ohhhhh…. They are so cute! Your boys will be busy for the next months taking cre of them.

  33. Dona Keyton — 4/26/13 @ 4:32 pm

    Now this has made my day! I have some neighborhood ducks laying eggs at our apartment building. I love going out every night like clock work at 6:30. They show up to get fed then go back to their nests.

  34. Oh my gosh…these ducklings are utterly precious!!! AMAZING photos by the way! Reminds me of when you brought the chicks home. I grew up with lots of animals (chickens, ducks, horses, pigeons, cats, dogs, etc.) and it was fantastic. Lots of baby chicks and ducks! Would love to have that again, but that might be just a tad difficult living in San Francisco! Maybe one day.

    Anyway, I’ve been meaning to email you (we met briefly at the Chronicle Books party, during the IACP Conference, while chatting with Eric Gower). I will do it now! This post was a good inspiration…and it made my day so see such a sweet yellow baby! Thanks!

  37. Spikeygrrl — 4/26/13 @ 11:48 pm


    Are you gonna post more happy pix as you carve him up for dinner?

    The only times I’ve previously ever read “Asian” and “duck” in the same sentence it was in a recipe.

  38. Joon — 4/27/13 @ 6:52 am

    Your sons are so-ooooo fortunate to grow up with so many animals around them. Bless. Love the ducks and dogs!

  39. Beverly Evanoff — 4/27/13 @ 6:59 am

    What a sweet, adorable ducky!!!! I was so afraid that when I scrolled down my email there was going to be a duck recipe……thank you for that. LOL!

  40. Paula Newman — 4/27/13 @ 11:01 pm

    I used to have ducks when I was young & lived on a farm.. I miss them days.. \

  41. Sara — 4/28/13 @ 2:34 pm

    I’m in LOVE!! Too cute!!

  42. MikeW — 4/28/13 @ 3:26 pm

    Beautiful little guys. They’re popular in the Pacific NW because they eat slugs. Slugs are a real pest in that climate.

    They eat vegetation too. Mint farms in Oregon’s high desert use them to weed the fields. The ducks are a second crop for the mint farmers. They don’t keep them on the job for too long because in the second year the ducks develop a taste for mint.

    Also, I’ve been told by old-timers that they’re good to have for a pond, their droppings help to seal the bottom.

  43. Babs Boardwell — 4/28/13 @ 4:03 pm

    Yes. Super cute duck/dogs pics! I can relate to the expensive TV remote control stories – when our bitch was younger she managed to destroy 3. My husband was not best pleased ^_^

    Oh Jaden, I was so happy to see that you have little ducks. They are the cutest things!! It reminds me of when I was a little girl growing up in Italy in 1970 and my grandparents had baby ducks too. I really miss them. Is it warm all year round where you live? I love this post and your cute ducks too!!
