If you were looking to find a mother duck caring for her eggs you wouldn't normally start at a sports bar. But in fact a mother duck has set up in the outdoor patio of a Southwest Lubbock business called Fox And Hound.
"This is her second year, coming here," says employee Vanessa Bryant. "She's a returning customer."
Bryant says, "Last year she was here. She had about three eggs. This time she's got seven."
Bryant, who at times seems shy in front of a TV camera, is not shy at all when you ask which person is the duck's favorite. "Well, me of course. I'm her favorite. She's never tried to snap at me."
Bryant says employees feed her bread and provide her water every day.
Have any patrons made life difficult for the duck? "No, for the most part everyone just leaves her alone."
"We love her. She's our little fox icon duck… Yeah, our second mascot is a duck."
Bryant named the mother duck "Bella."
