I am sad to post that my beloved pet Muscovy duck, Huey has been missing almost 2 weeks now. DH, DD and others are holding out hope that she has "went broody somewhere". I hope so too, but even my AWOL broody hens show up to eat. Those of you that are attached to your birds as much as I am know what I mean. You still see them at least a few days a week. Huey expects and gets a handful of chick feed from me every day, and its been our "thing" for 4 years now. I hope I am wrong but feel she is gone. She has had a lot of love from us and we adore her. Huey has also been a very independent duck, and escape artist. She was unhappy with the new rules regarding no free ranging unless supervised. RIP my precious little lady.
I am so sorry to hear that i hope they are right, and she does end up coming back!
I was going out to the barn monday afternoon to feed the birds, and look who was waiting for me:
It was my first time seeing him up close and personal. He had no fear of me at all. And he was shaking his feathers at anything that walked by. Chicken, turkey, cat.... it didn't matter what it was, he was just hoping someone would notice how pretty he is. Unfortunately for him, except for me watching him, he might as well been invisible....such is the life of a boy bird on the farm. lol
Wow, what a beautiful peacock! peafowl are a breed i admire but will sadly probably never have :) glad hes so friendly for you!
