It’s a duckling stampede!

Here’s what happens when a Chinese duck farm released 5,000 ducklings, all three to five days old, for their first encounter with water.  Apparently it’s done to get them used to exercise and improve their muscles.

Of course, they’re ultimately going to end up on dinner plates across China, so they may as well enjoy the water while they can!
