Newly Hatched Ducklings Snuggle Up to Older Goslings in Adorable Video

Five newly hatched ducklings and two goslings became inseparable from the moment they met at a farm in Oberlin, Ohio, video shows.

When farmer Tammy Tunison brought home two two-week-old goslings to meet her newly hatched ducklings, she “could not have been more surprised” at the special bond the young birds formed.

The goslings were at least twice as large as their new roommates, and the ducklings ran right up to them “as if they were their mothers.”

The same evening, Tunison filmed the tender moment of the seven baby birds cuddling on camera. Tunison said the goslings have behaved as the protectors of the tiny ducklings, even wrapping their unfeathered wings around them.

Tunison regularly films humorous videos of her goats and other pets, posting them to her Hobby Farm Facebook account and submits videos to Storyful. Credit: Tammy Tunison via Storyful
