Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle met a woman on Today’s This Morning who claims she gained a pet duck through an unorthodox means.
Chloe, who lives in Cornwall, met her tiny best buddy Buddy after incubating duck eggs she bought from Morrisons.
After hearing that it was a possible, she set to work buying the supplies, finding an incubator, and collecting the duck.
She could observe a heartbeat after only a few days.
‘I always knew I was going to keep her,’ Chloe sweetly told Josie, 38, and Craig, 52.
‘I actually had two that were fertile, but sadly the other one didn’t make it to hatch day,’ explained Chloe.
Josie then requested Chloe to explain how she discovered Buddy’s gender.
Buddy basically threw her own low-key gender reveal party: ‘We thought she was a boy, so we called her Buddy but then she started laying eggs so we know she’s a girl’.
‘It is surprising to a certain extent and people at home might be a bit freaked out,’ pointed out Craig.
We have to admit that we are reconsidering our scrambled egg breakfasts, and we are not alone.
‘I’ve just bought some [eggs] I don’t want to use them now,’ wrote one person.

Other viewers were a little perplexed at the guest’s revelation.
‘Can you buy duck eggs from the supermarket??’ enquired one person. According to Chloe – yes!
Others were in such shock, they simply said they ‘do not believe this story’.

Josie and Craig afterwards assured everyone at home that purchasing fertilised eggs is extremely unusual.
Deza Empson from Redcar, Yorkshire, also threw some Braddock-White Clarence Court eggs from Morrisons in an incubator on a whim – and three of them hatched.
