Dont get me wrong I LOVE all animals. But today i resent the wild ones. At least the predators. I have (had) six baby ducks, 3 that are 5 months, and the other three were 3 months old. I made a pen in my barn for them until i get there run comletely done, and since there is a pond and the younger ones still arent fully featherer yet they havent gone out there. So i opened the door for them today so they could have some sunlight today. Which they love. Anyway, I got a call from my sister today and she told me one of my ducks was missing. I didnt think anything of it because two of mine have made themselves a little hole to sleep in during the day. So when i got home i discovered a hole had been ripped in my pen and my little baby khaki was gone. I searched and searched and couldnt find her anywhere in the barn or there pen. I started to freak out. Then i discovered one of my rouens, he has most of his feathers on one of his wings pulled out and a small bite mark. I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off. LOL! UGH! So i go searching out in the yard thinking she wont be there she was carried off by whatever this was. But I turned around and there she was in the middle of the yard. DEAD! I was furious! Not only was i mad that this animal had attack my ducks it ticked me off. (sorry for the language). Why the heck would an animal take the time to break into my pen to get to my ducks and then kill one of them hurt another one and then not have the decency to take her off and eat her. Ridiculous! I realze it is part of life, and im not about to go hunting a random animals down, especially since it was doing what comes naturally. It doesnt know anything about this is a pet so its not allowed to be eaten. It just does what it does to feed itself. But no it left my poor duck in the middle of the yard, still intact. Whitout being eaten. Sorry had to vent, and i know you all will understand better than most. BTW i am looking for another khaki to replace her. I am sad that i lost her but want one because i love there personality. If you know of anyone who has some close to me let me know. I have a wanted ad on here as well for one. It explains everything. RIP Kasey!
