Diary of a four-legged duckling
Stumpy the duck
The mutation is rare but cases have been recorded elsewhere
Stumpy the four-legged duckling has embraced his new-found international fame by starring in an online diary.

The ugly duckling made waves around the world when his rare condition was highlighted earlier this month.

Stories of his mutation had reporters in a flap from Sweden to America and TV appearances followed.

Now his owners at Warrawee Duck Farm, in Copythorne, Hampshire, have started a internet diary to allow Stumpy fans to track his progress.

Owner Nicky Janaway said Stumpy became a "worldwide phenomena".

"Stumpy's media career went into orbit," she said.

"I am very glad that we have been able to share this experience with the rest of the world."
