4 Wheel Drive Duckling

A duckling has made waves on a farm after being born with four legs. A rare mutation has left eight-day-old Stumpy with two extra legs behind the two he moves around on.Owner Nicky Janaway, of Warrawee Duck Farm in the New Forest, Hampshire, said she was gobsmacked when she turned Stumpy over to check his sex. "It was absolutely bizarre. I was thinking 'he's got too many legs' and I kept counting: One, two, three, four,'" she said."He's eating and surviving so far and he is running about with those extra legs acting like stabilisers".
