Farmer Hong, armed with a long stick and aided by his three assistants, guided the flock one kilometre across the city of Taizhou in the Zhejiang province.
Hong stated that he has been doing this regularly for six months but has never lost a single duck.
Though this recent trip was timed to avoid rush hour, a number of commuters were affected by the herd.
