Hello, from Lancaster County.
yeah, but i have to get rid of them danielle, since bill wants to be a "snowbird" have to sell them, its too much to ask our son to take care of everything along with what he does, bill says that we might have to GIVE them away cause no one will want to buy them
How many more days to hatch day?
So I've gotten myself into another predicament here... Nothing new, I'm always getting myself into something lol.
Anyway, we got a text a couple of days ago from my cousin asking if we could come over and execute a white duck that she thinks killed one of the smaller ducks he's been living with for the past 2 years. I had my doubts about him having anything to do with the death of this other duck since they've been having a problem with a weasel lately. But we said we'd come over when my husband was off work. When we got there today what I saw didn't quite match up with what we'd been told. She has six smaller ducks, 3 males and 3 females in the pen with this big guy. I don't know much about ducks but they're the ones that look like little mallards. Anyway, when we went in to catch the white one we were supposed to be killing the one little drake started beathing the heck out of him. Chasing him around relentlessly and ripping feathers out of him and grabbing his tail and just going nuts on him. Seems to me it was either this little bugger or the weasel that was actually responsible for the death of the other little duck. I couldn't see killing this poor guy for a crime he hadn't committed. Besides the fact that he's about 2 yrs past the age when he'd even be any good for eating.
Now I've got this big white duck quacking around my yard and have no idea where to go with it. I posted it on my local PA swap page on facebook. But I don't know what else to do. I know we really can't keep him. But I don't know where to go with him either.
Why do I do this to myself! XD
...oh no...I told Dh about this..and he said "if" we had the room, we would be right there for ya & that it would be awesome....gosh, I really wish we did..., then you would know that they were very well cared for...mini babies that they are....I hope you don't have to "give " them away..you shouldn't ...I thought there would be interest in those types of animals..
now the hard part, like sharron said..waiting
I would have done what you did and separate the offender... give her a 'time out' so to speak. Give it a day and try again, she will loose standing in the flock by being separated so it may bring her back down to size, so to speak.
There will be squabbling, but it shouldn't be so horribly extreme.
X's 2 !! bad girl that one!!
