A couple days after "Snowmageddon" started, a duck somehow found its way to our house, but I want fast enough to get out my camera. But today, about a week later, the same duck came back! We have named him Tiger. You can't see it in the pictures, but Tiger is trying to get into our house! XD #ducks #ducksarethebest #nowrealizingihavemadebacktobackduckposts

Diaper application update. We got the daisy diaper on Dusty but it must not have been adjusted properly as it hung down in the back and she wasn’t all that pleased. She did tolerate putting it on well and walked in it (although very awkwardly). The entire incident took around 30 seconds to transpire but she needed a 5 minute snuggle with dada afterwards to recover. Then he put her down and she told Otter what it was like and laughed hysterically. We won’t give up just yet. Sorry no pics, it was just too much to start snapping 📸 Happy Saturday everyone. #dustyandotterduck #diaperupdate #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood

After 10 days sleeping in a playpen in our house the girls are finally back to sleeping in their own pad outside 🎉The temperature warmed up considerably, and while there’s still quite a bit of snow, they’ve started to tolerate standing on it at least 😂 It was really sweet to have them back in the house with us and looking in the mud room to see them all tucked in and warm was really adorable, but I know they’re happier to be in their own space outside. That was a helluva snow situation duckies, we’re all really proud of you for taking it in such stride. The diapers will be tried on tomorrow and if they are on board to wear them, we’ll have a solid plan for occassional house visits and future freak Seattle snow storms. Night everyone, thanks for being such a loving and fun extended family ❄️🥰👋 #dustyandotterduck #snowducks #animalvideo #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #throwbackthursday

Remember the post from the other night when I said the girls called the spot where their pool drains their “secret snow lagoon”? Well it actually looks like that now 😂 We had a huge tree limb come down right on their garden roof, luckily dada’s superior design and building skills caught the limb and no damage was done to the enclosure 🙌 Dusty was exceptionally brave this morning in trying to navigate this piney passage, but she decided it was too much in the end. Remember that these two are scared of brooms, smoothies, and rolls of masking tape, so this was a huge step for her 👻🙅🏻‍♀️😅 #dustyandotterduck #snowducks #animalvideo #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood

After 1.5 weeks of snow the girls couldn’t stand waiting for it to melt anymore. They decided to take matters into their own hands and go on a snowy expedition. It lasted about five minutes then they were done, but they were really proud of themselves 😌 #dustyandotterduck #snowducks #animalvideo #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood

Just got home from work and the girls DEMANDED to inspect all attire personally, before they don anything. Think they were overall very pleased with craftsmanship, style, and fabric choice. The both seemed to especially like the heart and flower faux buttons at the top of the bib. Of course they did, those are the best part 😍 What can I say, the girls have good taste. Now to see if they’ll actually wear them....Gonna give them a few more days to warm up to them and get used to seeing them around. But so far so good, considering they’re usually scared of anything new. We will prob wait to try them on until this weekend. Sorry for the suspense but they gotta be fully on board 🤞 #dustyandotterduck #duckdiapers #fashionreport #inspectionprocess #animalvideo #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood

Omg the diapers are here! And they are more beautiful than I ever imagined. I will die a happy woman if the girls will actually wear these 😂 If not, we will do a giveaway for all you bird moms out there! These were custom made by @bonanaspetboutique and holy cow the craftsmanship is just impeccable. We chose the blue daisy one for Dusty and the dark one with hearts for Otter, but could switch em, what do you guys think? They each come with two newborn diapers which get inserted in the back under their bum. Getting these on the girls will be an entirely separate story 😅 We will gladly take any tips or trick to help them get used to wearing these occasionally. Thank you so much @bonanaspetboutique for your obvious love of birds and their slightly crazy parents 🤩 #duckdiapers #dustyandotterduck #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood

Dusty’s getting ready for her nap and Otter’s enjoying the last of the chia bowl. Watch how Dusty tucks her foot into her down feathers to keep it warm while she rests. It completely disappears! Remember that down is for ducks and geese, not jackets, vest, blankets, sleeping bags or shoes. They need it to stay alive, and we have excellent synthetics available that rival any feathers.

Happy Darwin Day! Did you know that Darwin once used duck feet to help him explain the theory of evolution?!?! His experiments showed that snails could hop continents on the bottoms of duck feet. Which ultimately helped him explain how 2 similar creatures could be found at such different places in the world! P.S. Mary wants to clarify that she wouldn't be caught dead with snails on her feet.

After a week of snow, it seems the weather has finally turned and rain has arrived. The girls are enjoying a cucumber chia bowl for breakfast. Hoping more of this 16” or so of snow melts away today and tomorrow. Forage time will return soon girls, I promise. For those who’ve asked about the chia. My husband loves the kombucha chia drinks. One day he was drinking it and said something like “I feel like a frog drinking this, I bet the girls would like it too” 🐸 And so we researched it to see if it was safe and couldn’t find anything suggesting otherwise. And yes, they do love it. It gets all chewy like some kind of tiny pond plant and is full of healthy protein, vitamins and minerals. We usually give them a teaspoon or so in their water bowl, maybe once a week in the winter, to supplement for missing protein from minimal bugs. This week they’ve had a little bit everyday as they’ve had zero forage time for over a week. Chia is also a superfood for humans, very tasty in oatmeal, pancakes, waffles and cookies. The seeds are so tiny you can just sprinkle them in and they boost the nutrition significantly. They can even act as an egg replacer in baking, just mix 1 tbsp with a bit of hot water until they soften and get gelatinous like a scrambled egg. 😘 #dustyandotterduck #chia #eatplants #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood

Another morning in the house, another snowstorm on the way. We now have over a foot of snow and we lost our rain tent to the weight of it last night 😳 But the girls are hanging tough, snuggling and napping and snacking like this is the new normal. Adaptability at its finest :) The good news is that it’s slowly getting warmer, and some of this snow will change to rain in next few days. The girls will be heading back outside for the day in the balmy 35 degrees to swim and snack in the comfort of their own house.

It’s been one week since we brought the girls in the house to sleep. They are certainly getting used to it, must remind them of when they were teens living in our kitchen full time 😂 Dusty REALLY wanted a snuggle from dada tonight before bed. Otter was on my lap watching the screen and decided to adjust, then readjust the exposure with her beak 📷😎 Truly remarkable beings. They’re all snuggled in their playpen, with a curtain over the window so no peeping animals can see them while they rest. All is well in duckville. Now let’s see how much snow this second storm gives us tonight, then we can worry about the super storm set to hit us Tuesday 😑We have plenty of bedding, cucumbers and food for them, and coffee for us so we should be good ❤️Night all. #dustyandotterduck #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood

Best part of waking up in the house? Being able to demand snacks straight outta bed! They don’t stop talking, laughing, yelling until they get their lettuce and chia bowl for breakfast. I usually have half a cup of (half caf!) coffee when I wake up. That has significantly increased (to two full cups) this past week 😂 They are the biggest joy and the biggest mess. Back to their pool for the day. More snow is supposed to hit us tonight, and possibly through Tuesday. Grateful that we have a warm house and plenty of food for us and them. We’re all hanging in there ❤️ #dustyandotterduck #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #duckmerch

Reposted from @dustyotterduckums - If the super bowl was based around which ducklings could pretend to eat the most lettuce without actually eating any, our girls would have won. Fast forward four years and they would definitely lose 🐷🥬🏈 Who else would watch that kind of duckling bowl? 🙋‍♀️ Happy game watching (or not), hope it’s full of yummy veggie snacks and cute baby animals.

Asked the girls to pose next to their likeness on my sweatshirt to see how close the resemblance is. Pretty darn close if you ask me! Big thanks and love to super talented artist and friend @abelmac 🎨 We went to art school with him many years ago in NYC, he’s now based out of LA and spreads his magical dreamscapes and visions around the world. We are so grateful he shared this perfect drawing of the girls with us. We have this rad design available in our shop on super soft hoodies and tees, all profits go towards the girls medical bills and duck rescues nationwide.

@dustyotterduckums

A lot of folks have been asking why the girls sleep standing up and/or sleep with their eyes open so I thought I’d share what I know :) Ducks are able to sleep both laying down and standing up, when sleeping while standing they usually tuck one leg up into their downy feathers and leave one leg exposed. This helps control their body heat and minimizes heat loss by about half! We often see them lay down in their playpen or near their pool, it just depends on how they feel and their internal thermostat. As for the eye open while sleeping, that’s even more interesting. Ducks can let one hemisphere of their brain sleep at a time, leaving one eye open on the side of the brain that remains alert for predators, and letting the other eye and corresponding brain hemisphere sleep. With one eye open for potential threats researchers have seen sleeping ducks respond to a picture of a predator in less than 1/5 of a second 😮 They also noticed that when 4 ducks are sleeping in a row, the 2 in the middle will close both their eyes while the 2 on the ends will both leave the eye facing outward open. They have a built in 24/7 alarm system that still allows them and their friends to get as much shut eye as possible👏 The girls had a nice day in their pool and will be heading to bed soon. We think Otter saw a predator of some kind lurking in our front yard last night as she responded with her alarm quack. We got up and couldn’t see anything but I’m sure she did. They are completely locked in and secure but she must’ve seen it through the window. I might hang up a curtain tonight so they can get some extra restful sleep with no peeping raccoons wandering by. 🙅🏻‍♀️ #dustyandotterduck #sleepyducks #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #duckfacts

Absolutely beautiful. But boy is it gonna be a long week 😳 Seattle usually gets a couple inches of snow once or twice per year, at most. Occasionally we’ll get hit with a snow storm like this but it’s not usually accompanied by weeks of freezing temps. Sigh. The girls will be sleeping inside for a while yet. Really hoping their diapers arrive today or Monday 😬 They’re being good girls and making the best of it. #dustyandotterduck #animalvideo #snowducks #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #flashbackfriday

Reposted from @dustyotterduckums - It’s been snowing all afternoon but finally let up for a bit. The temperature is warmer than it’s been all week and the girls decided enough is enough.

But 5 minutes walking in the snow was plenty and then they were ready to hit the playpen. As soon as we put them in they were super quiet, sleepy, and satisfied.

Flashback to last winter. Yep, they still don’t really like the snow 🙅🏻‍♀️Don’t worry girls, dada is leaving work early today so he can give you extra snuggles. We’re expecting another few inches by tomorrow 😬 We’re hoping it melts quickly but it’s not looking promising. ☃️I actually like the snow quite a bit, but having the girls to care for makes it a little more complex. Luckily they’re very adaptable, that’s the most surprising thing we learned about them. They adjust fairly well to new situations as long as we’re with them and they feel safe. Brand new custom made duck diapers arrive in a few days, hopefully they adjust well to that new situation as well 😆 You will be first to see their reaction, I promise. #snowysnugs #snowday #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #flashbackfriday

They started fighting again 😩 This time looked like Otter started it (emboldened from last win🤔) So put them back outside to swim it off. Otter went first but did her “WHERE’S MY SISTER?!” quack.

They woke up around 20 min ago. Ate some lettuce and took a bath while listening to @prince then immediately went back to sleep with the help of some @beethovenclassics. Figured we might as well use all this indoor time to further their musical education. PS: Answer to why ducks sleep standing on one leg: “Birds' legs have an adaptation called "rete mirabile" that minimizes heat loss. The arteries that transport warm blood into the legs lie in contact with the veins that return colder blood to the bird's heart. The arteries warm the veins. Because the veins also cool the arteries, the bird’s feet are closer to environmental temperature and thus don’t lose as much heat as they would if they were at body temperature. And by standing on one leg, a bird reduces by half the amount of heat lost through unfeathered limbs.” #dustyandotterduck #animalvideo #ducksinthehouse #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood

Mama finally wised up and bought XXL puppy pads to cover our kitchen floor while the girls are inside during this unexpected and extra long cold snap. It looks like it’s going to be abnormally cold and with even more snow through next week 😳 I knew they’d be afraid of them unless I covered the entire floor so there was no other place to go. Sure enough they ran the other way. Held them on my lap on the pads for a few minutes and put a lettuce bowl in the center and that was enough for them to tolerate it. But as soon as they finished their lettuce they both turned and stood just next to the pads with their bums facing the other direction 😑Poor babies are getting antsy being cooped up by their pool all day without any foraging but no one wants to walk through the snow and ice either. Lotta sympathy for all you bird moms with freezing temps and snow all winter. It’s no joke to keep these guys entertained and the house poo free!

The girls are winding down in their play pen before drifting off to sleep. It’s another night inside as overnight temps are dropping again. They are getting used to the routine and seem to enjoy the floor to ceiling windows (our sliding door) and the wall of plants next to them. Mud room is probably the nicest room in our house actually 😂 Of course they get it.

@dustyotterduckums

Snack time is over and nap time is here. People often think of birds like ducks and chickens and somewhat robotic, just little egg or meat robots. But as you guys see everyday, they are so much more personable, funny, and adaptable than that. They quickly learn and accept new routines, even welcome them. They haven’t really napped in our kitchen like this in almost 4 years, since they were babies. But if given the chance and encouragement, that yes this is a safe place and you are ok to nap here, then they happily will. My hope in sharing their lives with you is that you see the sweetness and longing for a full life these creatures have. With all the snuggling, fighting, likes and dislikes, they are just like us. 🐣❤️🐣 #dustyandotterduck #ducksinthehouse #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #pnwonderland

I looked up to see them lunging at each other and Otter grabbed Dusty right between the eyes. For anyone who doubts Otter’s ability to stand up for herself, please know the girl can hold her own. Look at her satisfied face in the second photo 😂 Dusty is perfectly fine and yes, Otter got a time out too. #sisters #dustyandotterduck #cayugaduck #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #pnwonderland

Forgot I took these videos of the girls yesterday, after the biting fiasco. Dusty’s face 🤦‍♀️ Does she care that she got in trouble? Nope! You can see the indignation in her eyes 😂 #noapologies #divadays #dustyandotterduck #animalvideo #ducksinthehouse #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #pnwonderland

Ah, babies in the house. I’ve never cared for human babies but I’m thinking it’s fairly similar with these two. Waking up in their crib at the crack of dawn wanting to come out, hungry and stinky they play with their food and water making a mess and trying to eat anything they find on the floor, then finally settle down and want to snuggle and nap. They still really need a bath, but they’re hanging out until I can de-ice their pool and clean their bowls. It must be a snow day miracle as they’ve been in the kitchen for over an hour with me, eating lettuce, drinking chia water and listening to classical music without even a single poo 🙌 Mozart put them right to sleep. 🔮 Really proud of them right now 🐣😘🙏 #dustyandotterduck #animalvideo #ducksinthehouse #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #pnwonderland

All tucked in for the night. They’re sleeping in our mud room in their pack n play as it’s supposed to drop in temp tonight and we want them to be comfy. The mud room isn’t heated but it’s insulated and much warmer than outside. We don’t want them to sleep in the house with us as we have the fire going and it’s quite toasty in here. In the morning, they’ll want to go back outside and we don’t want them to go from super warm to super cold. Their dense layer of down feathers and high body temperature (105-106 degrees F) keep them warm in very cold conditions as long as they’re dry and protected from the wind. That being said, they seem to appreciate the play pen for those chillier days and nights. They swam in their pool all day and got their yayas out, so far no biting :) Night everyone. 😴 cc:@graco #dustyandotterduck #ducksinthehouse #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #pnwonderland

Every warm and snuggly snow day has to end with siblings fighting until they have to be separated. Lots of quacking and biting today (all by Dusty) so she had to sit in the vet tub until she finally passed out for her morning nap. 😴 I’ve actually never seen them fight in the play pen. But alas, babies. Back outside to swim or nap in their house the rest of the day. #dustyandotterduck #snowday #animalfriends #vegan #petducks #ducksarethebest #duckface #ducksofinstagram #ducklovers #birdsofinstagram #happybabies #ducks #veganfortheanimals #veganfam #vegansofig #beautifulbirds #veganlove #friendsnotfood #pnwonderland
