Chick and duckling comparison

Which are cuter, chicks or ducklings?

Anna and I both think the ducklings have the land fowl beat, but Adrianne is partial to fluffy chicks.

Which do you vote for?

Ducklings! Too bad I can't have any at the moment. Perhaps some time in the near future. I raised a flock when I was a kid, and they followed me around like I was their mother. Chicks don't seem to be as clingy as ducklings in my experience.

The water fowl wins hands down! They get cuter, and more comical as they grow. They have wonderful personalities too.

I think in terms of breeds. I like Khaki Campbell ducks and Barred Rock hens.
