    I would like to have some ducks again, they’re less reptilian than chickens.

    interesting how ducks are always so well groomed, every feather in place, and yet you never see them using a mirror.

    Black ducks breed here every year,



    several pairs usually, ours had 12 chicks, down to 9 by the time they got to be able to look after themselves.

    OK now I'll be thinking all day about this.
    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

    You live in OREGON. There are LOTTA ducks looking in the mirror!!!




    Seriously... one of my h.s. girlfriends had ducks. They would wander in the back door, into the mudroom/half-bath and jump up on the counter to look in the mirror.

    I wonder if THIS is what they saw...




    All of Lee's silliness aside... Joh, that is one gorgeous duck!!!

    Yaaas, our mallards have come in the house a couple of times, pics elsewhere. The first ducklings are ground effect flying now, down to 7 from 12. A second crop of 13 turned up a week ago while I was away, now down to 6. Big attrition on the second clutch.
