Duck Becomes This Little Boy’s Protector, Following Him Everywhere

Since Beaker the duck, or Bee, joined the Young family when he was just a little duckling, he became best friends with his little human Tyler. They’re so close that Tyler’s first word was even “duck”!

The Texas household has 11 ducks. “When Tyler was about 9 months old my husband was buying duck food and saw Beaker,” explained Jennifer. “He brought him home and from that day forward he hasn’t left Tyler’s side. If he cries, Bee quacks and runs to him.”

“Bee steals snacks when Tyler isn’t looking, they play outside together, go to the park together, enjoy wagon rides together, and Bee is always supervising bath time,” the mom added. “I never pictured myself having a pet duck that lives inside. But it’s amazing to see these two in action.”
