# tikzducks page numbering

How can I have duck-based page numbers, as in the tikzducks manual itself? They are adorable, and I would like to have random ducks holding my page numbers.

The manual tells us how to make a signpost duck and obtain a random duck, but how does one create (1) random signpost/pagenumber-holding ducks (2) in the footer?

At the end of chapter 3, the "duckumentation" describes how to create a random head decoration or a random accessories without using the \randuck:

(please notice that \shuffleducks has to be called each time a new duck shall be created. This is not necessary for the \randuck, because there this is done automatically)

The same concept can be used for the page numbers:

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage{scrlayer-scrpage}

\usepackage{tikzducks}
\usepackage{duckuments}% To create a dummy duckument

\setlength{\footheight}{45pt}
\cfoot{%
\shuffleducks
\begin{tikzpicture}[scale=0.5]
