Man Gets This Huge Surprise At His House. But What He Does Next Is Simply Amazing…

Reddit user ‘powerbookguy’ uploaded some photos that have been viewed a few hundred thousand times in just a 8 hours. You’re about to see why.

His title for the album was appropriately titled, “The call to my wife: “I’m bringing home 7 baby ducks! Hop online and figure out how we keep them alive.”

Check out how it all went down, according to this animal lover.

I came up over a hill to find the momma duck dead and the babies scurrying into the road to get to her. I pulled a quick U-turn and shooed them off the road. They huddled by a closed garage for warmth.

I quickly discovered I had nothing in my car to transport ducks (won’t make that mistake again!). An employee from the golf course just down the street got me a box. Here they are cuddled in the box after I collected them.

Once home, my wife and daughters helped me make a temporary home for them…a storage bin with a towel in the bottom.

We quickly discovered these little guys (girls?) can really jump! My girls had this innovate solution to block them from hopping out while I searched for a better solution.

One tiny duck hotel with a heat lamp, check! I cleared a space in the corner of our garage and it was time for them to move in.

They seemed to take to the new spot right away. They drank water from bowls and then just sat in the water. Our neighbor ran to a local pet store and picked up some food for them.

They survived the night! We’d done everything we knew to do and were pretty sure they would be warm enough, but it was great to see them alive and well still this morning. Next step, finding them a permanent home.

Now that is a rescue story I can get behind. Kudos to this guy for not just ignoring these abandoned ducklings that tragically lost their mommy. I hope they end up in a great forever home after this rough start to life!
