I love that sound. Even the big flappity ones like Opie. Of course the ladies still have small feet compared to the drakes.
IHe was just in and left me enough feathers to start a down comforter. .I also have been giving Ernie some extra calories in the form of dog kibble[lamb and rice] along with whole corn and meal worms Hoping to put some weight on him before serious cold gets here. He isn't near as heavy as he use to be. Any one who has older ducks might want to think about doing this a little extra calories may make the difference in how well they do over winter.
Oh and have you ever seen the little paint samples at Lowes so if your thinking about changing a color you can try it on your wall first with these samples? well my dad had a coupon for a free one and I used it last year got a lavender color nothing in my house would go with it but I love the color anyway I found it the other day and was going to toss it when I thought maybe using it in one of my houses so yesterday I did I painted the front of the stalls. I have to buy one more now to get them all done but what was funny is Dolly didn't want to come inside last night I think the color was so different than the dark brown she wasn't sure it was her house. lol I'll post pics when done maybe I'll add some flowers[just kidding]
