This is a real feel good story, but what does it say about the conditions these babies were living in when they have to be "introduced" to water!

...excellent point Carrie...but as the saying goes...these ducks took to water like the ducks they are or something like that. At least they are where they can do and enjoy what ducks should be doing and enjoying....and that's the important and the really good thing about the clip.
Thanks for sharing...!

I was surprised that it took them a few runs and/or dives to get used to the water. At first they were a bit traumatized. Then their inner duck took over!

When I watch anything to do with animals, I just sit and cry - to think that they should have been doing this from birth already and only now do they get their freedom. It makes me want to puke - over despicable humans.

How sad they had never seen water, so glad they were rescued !

They looked so content once they got used to the water. Humans are so cruel to animals. Hope this person was fined and forced to pay for these ducks care. Too often those that hoard get off scott free and let others to clean up their messes. These ducks were so much fun to watch. They created a life-time memory for those that got to see it.

Punish the hoarder, ducks belong into the water, at least that's how it should be.
