Rescued Ducks Encounter Water For The First Time
By Sarah Medina : 10/05/2012 4:14 pm EDT

Rescued Ducks Water First Time, Good News .Two dozen recovering ducks were able to swim for the first time ever after being rescued from a horrible hoarding situation.
Watch the heartwarming video. It may make you want to adopt one of those adorable ducks.
PajlIsKd0 reports that the ducks were rescued from a hoarder who'd been keeping more than 160 birds in filthy and overcrowded conditions. The ducks had never even seen water before.

The Woodstock Animal Sanctuary, in Woodstock, N.Y., has since nursed them back to health -- repairing infections, injured feet, and malnutrition.

The toughest part, though, was teaching the ducks how to swim. In the video, you can see that they're a bit hesitant at first, but become comfortable once they get in the water.

    I have never heard of Duck Hoarders. I guess there is a first time for everything. I'm so glad the Ducks were rescued. I wish they would have had the sounds of the Ducks instead of the music. Once the Ducks realized how nice the water was, they were chatting all about it. Thanks for the clip! emoticon

    emoticon It looked as if One Duck figured out how to 'Shower' himself, and the others decided to Jump In. Too Cute! I hope you don't mind, I shared the Video (not your Blog) on Facebook.
