Erica Lim, 39, from Malaysia, has an unusual pet. She lives with a duck. Initially, the woman had not planned to keep a duck as a pet. It happened by chance.
Two years ago, Erica bought a fertilized duck egg in one of the Vietnamese restaurants. Such eggs are used to make a dish called Balut. The woman wanted to see if there really was a chick inside, so she placed it in a homemade incubator. Two weeks later, Lim became the mother of a little yellow duckling.
Erica has created an Instagram account for the little duckling, where she shows funny moments from the bird's life.
