DUCKS AND STUFF
I decided a year or so ago that I wanted a duck. So, we
have a beautiful male duck and have become so attached to
him. We clipped his wings at first but now they must have
grown back as he takes off and flies around the neighbors
house and back. He is really quite sociable...we put him
in his cage and inside every night and let him out every
a.m...(so the nocturnals don't get him)...he is
constantly about the ankles, billing. So much fun...
RE: DUCKS AND STUFF
I love ducks too! We had them as a
kid and my dad originally got them for us to EAT but they
were so cute and darling that he let them live and we ate
the ugly Turkeys and Chickens instead.
We have wild ducks that live here in the apartment
complex and they have a nice little pond-lake on the
other side but we have our "regulars" that stay
on our side. I put out cracked corn, sunflower seeds and
of course water and bread crumbs and etc., They are so
sweet and darling and never hurt a soul. The have
problems with their little feet though and my husband
says it is from the dogs and foxes. I wish I had little
tennis shoes to put on all of them. Just precious they
are with their little duck bodies and they can be quite
vociferous little quackers.
