Meet the Aylesbury ducks, known as ‘The Girls’ by their owner Georgi Wood and her family.

The pair, who were born this year on April 5, were still under a heat lamp when they moved in with Georgi as they were only 10 days old.

They get along great with her two cats, two dogs and the tortoise so much so that they are the bosses of a house and garden.

Georgi’s sons, Theo, 11, and Arley, eight, both handled the ducklings, stroked and fed them every day.

She said: “Because of that it has made them both so tame to the point that every morning they wander in and sit in our lounge like it’s a normal thing to do.

“Every evening my partner goes into the garden and says bedtime girls and they waddle in until he says ‘wrong way’ and off they go into their enclosure.”
