The Easter Bunny put baby ducks in Akela's Easter basket I served duck and chicken every evening in my dining room. Then I moved the doghouse and pool into the fenced yard. Why don't ducks sleep where I intend? Akela is hoping to get 3 wishes from the goddesses: Never dine alone: This is what the ducks are intended to do... eat algae and mosquitos. The watcher sees the best of the game: But swimming is SO much more fun: The ducks have no intention of sleeping in the igloo doghouse I painted for them and intended to put on an island. The 'duck compound' is only interesting when I am feeding them there. They like to hang out on the stone porch (where everyone walks in and out of the house) or under the van. The 2 dogs and 4 cats keep the ducks fairly well protected. The dogs race out the doggy door anytime the cats signal or something in the woods seems suspicious. I am hoping the ducks never follow the dogs into the house through the doggy door. I have a feeling if I build a duck house, the ducks will have no interest in being there. Do ducks ever live where intended?
