I have my own duck horror story. We were recently expanding the enclosure for our two ducks and the fence was taken part way down. During this time out dog decided to go get better "acquainted" with them. Interesting fact, a ducks neck is a great place for a dog to grab them buy. Long story short, we were minus one duck, and despite what I said earlier, I was actually sad.
And since ducks don't do very well by themselves, we either had to give the remaining one away, or get a new one. Being that we had just put a lot of work into building them a pen, we decided to go for the new duck. An adorable little ducking.
It's so cute. Nice and fluffy, and it follows me around wherever i go.
I take back almost all the nasty things I said about ducks, this is the cutest little thing I have ever seen. It's still to young to live outside with our other duck though.
But in about another two weeks he should be big enough. And the pen is now nice and dog proof.
So I guess I changed my mind about the ducks, they start to grow on you after a while.
They still smell bad though.
