Not that he is mean.
Have you ever had "chucked something out"? Maybe food gone bad?
Since "Chuck" rhymes, you could call him "Chuck, the duck". I was referring to it being mean to "chuck out a duck"
Maybe it's a dialect or generational thing. I'll stop trying to be so funny.
Oh!!! I get it! It is funny!
Chippy....so glad you got the bantam cochin you were looking for. I just hatched 11 of them and they are sooooo cute. I should have splash, blue, and black. We just got ducks for my daughter this year also. Chuck is adorable, but he may need a friend since ducks are very social. Good luck in finding him one.
I just put an ad on CL for a call duck hen. If anyone knows of any please PM me. Chuck was $20. Is that expensive? I don't really know... it's my first duck.
