School surprise: Hen adopts orphaned baby duckling

Pupils at Fiskerton Primary School have been left bemused by a new friendship which has blossomed between a duckling and a chicken.

Lucky the duckling hatched at the Lincolnshire school after Victoria Peckham was brought in to sit on five eggs that had been laid by a duck and abandoned.

Pupils said the unusual pairing had surprised them all but seemed to be working well.
