Nothing Will Hurt Loving Duck’s Favorite Little Boy

This lucky little boy gets to shower with both a rubber and a real ducky.

Jennifer Young decided to add a duckling to her family in 2015, when her son Tyler was only a few months old. She had no idea how fast her kid and the tiny duck would become friends.

Since then, Tyler’s best friend has been Beaker the duck, commonly known as Bee.

In fact, Tyler’s first word was “duck,” Young told The Dodo back in 2016, about 9 months after bringing Bee home.

Young explained, “They did everything together: play, eat, snooze, etc.” “With a harness, he [Bee] was easy to teach.” Young was unconcerned about having a kid and a duck in diapers (though Bee sometimes yanked his off).

Their bond only grew from there, and whenever Tyler would toddle around the house, Bee was sure to be right behind him.

“From the time these two get up till the time they go to bed, it’s chaos,” Young said.

While Tyler was eating, Bee would plead for food, and Tyler, of course, would slip him whatever he wanted.

Young said that the two would destroy Tyler’s room up in under five minutes and then act equally guilty when she caught them.

Bee is also “very protective of his boy. If I am holding Tyler and he’s crying, Bee is at my feet quacking, making sure he’s not hurt,” Young said.

Before Tyler, Young had maintained pet ducks for a long time. She’d had a dozen or more at a time earlier. But, until Bee, they’d mostly been outside pets by choice.

Bee realized that maintaining an indoor duck “isn’t nearly as strange as it appears.”

“When I first discovered that people kept ducks inside wearing diapers, I laughed out loud,” Young adds. “Bee is just as devoted, smart, and resourceful as the rest of the hive.”

Of course, none of this seemed odd at all to Tyler. He’s never known life without his diapered, feathery closest friend.

Young says, “As far as Tyler is worried, having a pet duck is the thing to have.” “He’ll tell you how much he loves his Beaker.”

Now, almost five years later, Young’s house has since welcomed another baby (and another duck in diapers). But the original best friends will always have a special place in each other’s hearts.
