Even though Kylie Brown is just 5 years old, she has a mother. At least in the eyes of her duck Snowflake, who imprinted on her when he was a young duckling the previous summer.
Ashley Brown, Kylie’s mother, told wnep, “We took him home, and this tiny yellow furball is squawking in a box, and Kylie came over to the box and leaned in, and he was calm.” “He was quiet everywhere she went. Additionally, he would quake and freak out if she disappeared.
They cannot be separated. Snowflake joins you whether you’re swimming in the summer or sledding in the winter. He has participated in sleepovers and trick-or-treating as Olaf, the snowman from the animated film Frozen. She said, “They are best buddies. “I’ve watched Kylie develop. She has grown to be quite accountable. She looks after him admirably. In an interview with Steve Hartman of CBS Sunday Morning, Kylie stated, “I’m his mom.”
Ducklings “imprint” throughout their early development. After hatching, if their original mother is not the first thing they see, they will pursue any other moving item they come across.
