I love ducks. Chickens are great for eggs but, ducks are just down right adorable. Whether big or small they are cute. Waddling around the yard. And they eat the slugs that eat our garden! Now, we haven’t gotten our own ducks but, for the last couple of years we have had a male and female “couple” use our pond for their babies. They have been hanging around for a while using the “pond” that formed in the garden. Zoe would head out their with my latest oops bread (it has gotten better by the way. I’ll post some success bread stories soon). As long as she kept her distance they would wait for her to through out the bread and then head over to eat it. They used the real pond for their babies and this year I got a picture.
They are so fun to watch. She has five babies this year. At one point she allowed them out of the fenced area to play on the grass. Under her watchful eye of course. You know, little ducklings are so obedient.
