They are really smart about a lot of things, except for jumping off of high things, they're literally parkour jumpers! I have to make sure non of them fall out when I open up their night time cage. They eat frogs!? Ewwww, poor little frogs lol. I'll share some pics of my duckies when I let them out, I've been waiting for it to warm up, it's kinda chilly out.

You are good at medical stuff for birds, or should I say, you know what to do for birds with health problems. I'll recommend you if I see any one else with a ducky in need smile.png ūüíĖūüĎŹ

I know usually if I see one running with a frog in it's bill it's too late the poor frog is dead. I do hide salamanders from them though.  lol   Even my chickens will catch a frog and eat it. mice too. 

Got to watch the jumping they can really hurt their legs.. You sound like a great duck mum.

Such pretty birds. What breed are your chickens?

Thanks! I'm not exactly sure cause we got them from our neighbor, but I do know they're mixed. 3 chickens have 5 toes with foot feathers, 1 has 5 toes without foot feathers, and the rooster has 4 toes with foot feathers, if that tells you anything. They're siblings.

Sounds like maybe some Silkie mixes.
