Ian Lamble of Driffield, East Yorkshire. Pumpkin the duckling sees Ian as his mother after he adopted the duck as an egg. See rossparry copy RPYDUCK : A decorator who found a duck egg at work was stunned after it hatched – and the duckling that emerged now thinks he’s his MUM and follows him everywhere. Dad-of-one Ian Lamble, 51, was working at a flour mill when he found the egg in an abandoned nest in a dusty corner. The egg was among ten hatched eggs which had been left behind by a mother duck and her chicks. Ian popped it on a heat pad and was the first person the young duck clapped eyes on when he emerged.
