If there's anything cuter than a duckling then I don't want to know about it.

No, I'm not gay.

Watcha Stan,
excellent duckling shot, we've got loads around the local pond, there are constant battles between the Canada geese, mallards, and, of course, the coots and moorhens, their chicks are forever paddling out of the war zone.
