Nibbles loves his little human, and he's not afraid to show it.

The sweet domesticated duck is the featheriest member of the Toschi Family in California, among whom son Jonny holds the highest place in his heart. Since Nibble's mother died before he hatched, the duck imprinted on the 10-year-old boy as though he were parent β€” a role Jonny has happily embraced.

In fact, if Nibbles had his way, the two would probably never be apart, but sometimes life gets in the way. Just watch how excited he gets to see Jonny arriving back from school, greeting the boy with a chorus of happy quacks.
