Hello. Welcome to My Pet And Me.

0:00:030:00:05

-I'm Ferne.

-And I'm Rory.

0:00:050:00:07

We're getting the barn ready for the animals.

0:00:070:00:10

We make sure they have the right food and water.

0:00:100:00:12

And a nice, comfy place to sleep.

0:00:120:00:14

Different animals make excellent pets,

0:00:140:00:17

-and we love meeting yours.

-We definitely do.

0:00:170:00:20

I'm off to meet some new friends.

0:00:200:00:22

# Have you met My pet and me? #

0:01:080:01:10

We're in Huddersfield, to meet Aaron and his pet ducks.

0:01:130:01:17

I love pet ducks and I can't wait to meet them.

0:01:170:01:20

-I think I can hear them now.

-QUACKING

0:01:200:01:22

Come on!

0:01:220:01:23

-Hi, Aaron.

-Hi.

0:01:320:01:34

-You must be Mum. Hello.

-Hi.

0:01:340:01:36

You have so many ducks. It is amazing.

0:01:360:01:39

They're beautiful. And who's this?

0:01:390:01:42

-Ollie.

-Oh, nice to meet you, Ollie.

0:01:420:01:45

He's playing hide and seek.

0:01:450:01:48

-Is Ollie a girl or a boy?

-Boy.

0:01:480:01:50

-Because he's got green on his head, you can tell he's a boy duck?

-Yeah.

0:01:500:01:54

-Beautiful. Do you know what boy ducks are called?

-Drakes.

0:01:540:01:58

Male ducks are called drakes,

0:01:580:02:00

and female ducks are called ducks or sometimes hens.

0:02:000:02:04

-And what are baby ducks called?

-Ducklings.

-I love ducklings.

0:02:040:02:08

-What breed of duck is Ollie?

-A call duck.

-Call duck.

0:02:080:02:11

What's your favourite thing about Ollie?

0:02:110:02:14

He loves cuddles and I love cuddles.

0:02:140:02:17

I've never met a cuddly duck before.

0:02:170:02:19

Ollie's a call duck. What other types of ducks do you have?

0:02:190:02:23

We've got the whistling ones, and the Cayugas and Carolinas.

0:02:230:02:27

They're gorgeous. I really like them.

0:02:270:02:30

Do you know what a group of ducks is called?

0:02:300:02:32

-A paddling.

-Oh!

-Which is really good, isn't it?

0:02:320:02:35

Cos ducks love to paddle in the water.

0:02:350:02:38

-Do your ducks paddle in the water?

-Yes. A lot.

-I bet Ollie loves it.

0:02:380:02:42

Rory, can you tell us more facts about our quacky friends here?

0:02:420:02:46

Of course, Ferne.

0:02:460:02:47

Ducks love water and they are very good swimmers.

0:02:500:02:54

They have webbed feet that act like paddles,

0:02:540:02:56

and push them through the water.

0:02:560:02:59

While ducks like to eat lots of different things,

0:02:590:03:02

like grass and insects,

0:03:020:03:04

they shouldn't eat too much bread, as it can make them poorly.

0:03:040:03:08

So if you're feeding the ducks why not try peas?

0:03:080:03:11

But make sure they aren't still frozen.

0:03:110:03:14

There are lots of different types of ducks.

0:03:150:03:19

Some are different colours, some are quiet, some are loud,

0:03:190:03:23

some even have fancy feathers on their heads.

0:03:230:03:27

Most ducks quack and the female ducks are often louder than the male ducks.

0:03:270:03:32

RORY QUACKS

0:03:320:03:33

A duck's feathers are waterproof.

0:03:370:03:39

They have a special waxy coating,

0:03:390:03:41

which helps keep their bodies nice and cosy and dry.

0:03:410:03:45

-DUCKS QUACK

-Ducks are very social animals,

0:03:570:04:00

and they enjoy being surrounded by other duck friends.

0:04:000:04:04

They can make great pets but need a lot of care and attention.

0:04:040:04:07

When you have as many as Aaron does, there's always work to be done.

0:04:070:04:12

What do we need to do to look after your ducks?

0:04:120:04:14

We need to fill up their ponds, feed them and collect their eggs.

0:04:140:04:19

That sounds like a lot of work. Should we get QUACKING? Come on!

0:04:190:04:23

Excuse me, ducks!

0:04:230:04:25

Wow.

0:04:320:04:34

What do they need the rocks for, Aaron?

0:04:370:04:39

For them to go in.

0:04:390:04:41

Or just hop in.

0:04:410:04:42

I think you should do it over there.

0:04:440:04:47

-At the back?

-Yeah, at the back, there.

0:04:470:04:50

-And how full do we have to make it?

-As full as possible.

-Right.

0:04:500:04:54

It takes a while to fill up, doesn't it? I like all the bubbles.

0:04:540:04:58

It's kind of like a pond Jacuzzi, isn't it?

0:04:580:05:01

-And what do the ducks do when they go into the water?

-Swim.

0:05:010:05:07

-That's enough.

-Is this enough water?

-Yes.

-OK.

0:05:070:05:10

-Let's get some duckweed.

-Yeah.

0:05:140:05:16

That's duckweed.

0:05:230:05:25

-Do they eat it?

-They love it and it's good for them.

0:05:250:05:28

-Is it kind of like a duck salad?

-Yes.

0:05:280:05:30

And where do we put the duckweed?

0:05:300:05:32

-In the ponds.

-Wow. So they swim and they eat it?

0:05:320:05:36

It's important for ducks to have enough fresh, clean water to drink.

0:05:360:05:40

Water also helps them to swallow their food.

0:05:400:05:43

How's that food looking? Good?

0:05:430:05:45

-Shall we go give it to the ducks?

-Yep.

0:05:450:05:48

-Shall we put the duckweed in?

-Yeah.

0:06:000:06:03

There you go, ducks. Whoa!

0:06:040:06:07

-Let's get the ducks in.

-Yeah! They're going to love it!

0:06:070:06:11

Look, look, look! Here they come!

0:06:130:06:17

Come on, ducks!

0:06:170:06:18

DUCKS QUACK

0:06:180:06:20

FERNE LAUGHS

0:06:200:06:22

They've been looking forward to that bath.

0:06:280:06:31

And they're munching all that duckweed.

0:06:310:06:33

The ducks look really happy.

0:06:350:06:37

-Shall we go see if they laid any eggs?

-Yeah!

0:06:370:06:40

One! Two!

0:06:500:06:52

-Where else are there eggs?

-I think down here.

0:06:570:07:00

That's it.

0:07:010:07:03

That's it? That's all of them?

0:07:030:07:06

Let's go.

0:07:060:07:08

Good job, Aaron. We got loads of eggs. What are we doing now?

0:07:080:07:12

-We're going to the poultry show.

-A poultry show? That's exciting.

0:07:120:07:16

Poultry is a word given to ducks, geese and chickens,

0:07:160:07:20

that can be used as pets or for their eggs and farming.

0:07:200:07:23

A poultry show is a competition where birds compete for awards.

0:07:230:07:27

It sounds like fun. What do we need to do?

0:07:270:07:30

First we need to give them a bath.

0:07:300:07:32

Give who a bath? Give Ollie the bath?

0:07:320:07:34

-That's going to be fun. Should we give it a go?

-Yeah.

-OK. Come on.

0:07:340:07:39

It's bath-time for Ollie. He got muddy in the garden,

0:07:450:07:49

and we need to make sure that he looks at his best.

0:07:490:07:52

We need to make sure his bill and feet are clean.

0:07:520:07:54

-Shall I pick him up and you can wash his feet?

-Yes.

-OK.

0:07:540:07:58

Excuse me, Ollie.

0:07:580:08:01

Wow! That's if you can get them!

0:08:010:08:03

Ducks have amazing waterproof feathers -

0:08:030:08:06

just as well, because they love water.

0:08:060:08:09

Please don't do this with ducks at your local duck pond,

0:08:090:08:12

they won't like it like Ollie does.

0:08:120:08:14

-Are his feet nice and clean?

-Yes.

0:08:140:08:18

-And what about his bill?

-Very nice and clean.

0:08:180:08:20

We'll put him back in and he can have more of a splash around.

0:08:200:08:24

I think he's looking really good. Should we dry him now? OK.

0:08:240:08:28

I'll get the towel.

0:08:280:08:29

Ooh! We should be gentle, shouldn't we, with his feathers?

0:08:320:08:36

I think he likes this.

0:08:360:08:38

-CHILDREN:

-My Pet And Me!

0:08:400:08:43

Now Ollie's nice and clean we're ready for the show.

0:08:430:08:47

Are you looking forward to it?

0:08:470:08:49

-Yeah.

-It's going to be so much fun, isn't it?

0:08:490:08:51

-I think he's excited.

-OLLIE QUACKS

0:08:510:08:54

If your ducks could do anything in the world, what would they do?

0:08:540:08:59

If my ducks could do anything, they would dig into the ground.

0:09:020:09:07

They'll find dinosaur bones.

0:09:070:09:10

They would put them together and bring the dinosaur to life.

0:09:100:09:15

And we'll all have a feast of giant peas and sweet corn.

0:09:160:09:21

There you go, Ollie.

0:09:370:09:38

Ollie is ready in his cage and the judges will be here soon.

0:09:380:09:42

So, Aaron and I are going to have a look around.

0:09:420:09:46

Duck eggs are usually larger than chicken eggs,

0:09:530:09:56

and they can come in lots of different colours,

0:09:560:09:59

from white, grey, blue, green and even black.

0:09:590:10:02

-That looks like the one earlier.

-Yeah, that is.

0:10:020:10:05

That's like one of your Cayuga's ones, isn't it?

0:10:050:10:08

Really, really lovely colour. Shall we have a look around?

0:10:080:10:13

The judges are measuring and weighing the eggs,

0:10:130:10:16

to decide which ones are the best quality and deserve a prize.

0:10:160:10:21

Oh, Aaron, I think the judge is ready!

0:10:310:10:34

So, we've got a chicken and three ducks.

0:10:340:10:38

Look, she checks their wings.

0:10:380:10:40

What does she look for?

0:10:400:10:42

Nice good long feathers. Look, she's going to check his feet.

0:10:420:10:46

And his bill. His bill's good and clean. We made sure of that.

0:10:460:10:50

-She's taking out the bigger one.

-Cayuga.

0:10:500:10:52

She's taking out a Cayuga. You've got some of those, don't you?

0:10:520:10:56

Now it's the chicken. That's a very small chicken, isn't it?

0:10:560:11:00

I hope Ollie wins. Do you?

0:11:000:11:03

If he does, I'll be well surprised.

0:11:030:11:06

Because he is a bit young, isn't he?

0:11:060:11:08

So he doesn't have all of his coloured feathers yet, does he?

0:11:080:11:13

The judges are making up their minds

0:11:130:11:16

on who is going to win best waterfowl.

0:11:160:11:18

Yay! That's Ollie! High five!

0:11:210:11:25

Yay! Well done to him.

0:11:250:11:28

What a good duck. Are you happy?

0:11:280:11:31

I am delighted!

0:11:310:11:33

Right, the best juvenile has been won tonight

0:11:330:11:38

by Aaron and his duck Ollie.

0:11:380:11:41

Well done. Very good.

0:11:420:11:45

Congratulations, Aaron and Ollie. You won!

0:11:520:11:56

Are you happy?

0:11:560:11:58

-OLLIE QUACKS

-I think he's happy!

0:11:580:12:00

You did such a great job. Well done, Ollie.

0:12:000:12:03

I love you, Ollie.

0:12:030:12:06

You're the best.

0:12:060:12:08

I've had so much fun meeting you and all of your ducks,

0:12:080:12:11

and this champion duck here.

0:12:110:12:13

And I even got to go to a poultry show!

0:12:130:12:15

-Thank you so much.

-Thanks for coming, Ferne.

0:12:260:12:28

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne. How was your day?

-Oh, it was great.

0:12:290:12:33

I had a brilliant time with my new friends.

0:12:330:12:35

What do you think of my work?

0:12:350:12:37

It's looking really tidy and the goats are happy.

0:12:370:12:40

-Good job!

-Thank you.

0:12:400:12:41

Pets are great but you shouldn't touch animals

0:12:410:12:44

unless the owner says it's OK.

0:12:440:12:46

Two pets you definitely can play with are ours.

0:12:460:12:49

Go to the CBeebies website, and play the My Pet And Me game.

0:12:490:12:53

Ferne visits Aaron and his pet ducks. Aaron really loves his ducks and tells Ferne all about them. Together, he and Ferne clean out the ducks' home and fill up the duck pond. Later, they go to a duck show and enter one of Aaron's ducks into a competition!
