I count the same way that Lara does! The only thing I don't count are exact duplicates. Different vinyl colors, eyes painted differently, and different manufacturer's markings indicate a different duck to me. It may seem silly when you first are getting started but after a while, if you get really into it, you will find that the small differences really start to matter. For instance, eyelashes painted a certain way tell me that a duck probably came from Poland!!

Doubles I don't count, but if I have a duck that's similar--not the exact same duck over again, but a duck that might be from the same mold, but have different eyes or something--even the slightest difference--I count them as two.
