Duck Becomes This Little Boy’s Protector, Following Him Everywhere

Since Beaker the duck, or Bee, joined the Young family when he was just a little duckling, he became best friends with his little human Tyler. They’re so close that Tyler’s first word was even “duck”!

The Texas household has 11 ducks. “When Tyler was about 9 months old my husband was buying duck food and saw Beaker,” explained Jennifer. “He brought him home and from that day forward he hasn’t left Tyler’s side. If he cries, Bee quacks and runs to him.”

“Bee steals snacks when Tyler isn’t looking, they play outside together, go to the park together, enjoy wagon rides together, and Bee is always supervising bath time,” the mom added. “I never pictured myself having a pet duck that lives inside. But it’s amazing to see these two in action.”

Bee is always supervising bath time

“It’s no different than a dog, really. Bee sleeps inside and wears a diaper during the day”

“Bee is extremely protective of my son. If he cries, Bee quacks and runs to him”

“If he hears him wake up from his nap he will run to his door and make a scene, wanting to go see his boy”

“These two do EVERYTHING together”

“From the time these two get up till the time they go to bed, it’s chaos”

This makes my heart SO very happy. Good for those parents! My first thought was, "I wonder how much time mama spends wiping up duck poop?" because ducks can be mighty messy that way. When I read about the diaper, and noticed (in the photos) how happy the duck is, I thought "WAY TO GO, MAMA!". Just lovely!!!

That's adorable! What's wrong with a diaper...,obviously the boy has imprinted on the duck as his parent.
