    OK, hello, erm, right. I don't know much about ducks (or indeed backyard chickens, front yard chickens or free range chickens for that matter) but I do know I love watching them and I enjoy their company so this is my first attempt at keeping ducks. So far I've had many casualties through inexperience (kestrel strike, rat ambush, weasel attack, pneumonia (? maybe?) and a drowning) but I have one drake, Lavender Splash Call and I'm hopefully getting him a lady friend in a few days from a friend who has lots.
    My name is Shelly, I'm 39, I live on the Isle of Man in the Irish Sea and I'm married to Dave with one son aged three, 2 step-daughters aged 20 and 24, a small black dog, a small tricolour cat and a small grey duck. We named him Mucky as he always looks a bit scruffy. He likes our bath, mealworms (or duck-crack as we call it) and nibbling my watchstrap!!
    When I write I use FAR too many capital letters, brackets and exclamation marks!!!
    I would like to create a small army of Call Ducks and storm our government building, eventually taking control of the whole island and ruling it with little, feathery soldiers. Mucky was hatched in June, I bought him as an egg off ebay and incubated him in my cleavage (OK that last part may not be true)

    Thanks for reading, I'll try not to be boring.

    Love
    Shelly
