My duck is gone!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Poof! just vanished overnight. I had a male and female khaki campbell, but the male, Ralph, was gone this morning. I keep them in a pen at night - no holes, breaks in the fence, etc. The female and her nest of eggs are still with me, but no sign of Ralph anywhere. Not even a feather.

I'm so sad :-(  My only guess is a flying predator, but I've NEVER had a problem before. Such a bummer...

I made my duck a new duck pond and moved them.  When I got up the next morning the drake flew back to the baby pool.  I looked all over for him, to find him in his old pin.  Did you move them in the past few days?  He might be looking for home.

I hope you can find him, and/or figure out what happened.sad
