    [​IMG] Oh no! Ducky dementia!

    Wow, Patti, I had no idea that they'd eventually stop molting. I hope my ducks outlive our dogs. Right now, the basement essentially belongs to the dogs, but once the ducks get older, I'd like to have it available for them at least during winter & the heat of summer.

    Tell Shirley I can relate to her issues thats for sure. [​IMG] Ernie had probably planning that attack for years. Opie moved into the right position and bam. Poor Opie I'm glad you rescued him. I'm sure Opie still felt like he won the battle.

    Ernie would probably have a cow if you put a sweater on him this winter. I've seen ducks with sweaters on before. It would probably hurt his pride but if Shirley and Ruth Ann got one to he might fit right in. I love hearing the stories of the ducks they surely keep us entertained.

    I fed the ducks awhile ago and I looked over and Uno was laying flat out in the plate that had his chick starter in it. He was just eatting away laying on top of all the food.

    How funny just laying in the feed? how lazy can you get. lol

    I have thought of sweaters before for my old ones, I'll have to think on that one. I do have a few pics of Opie sporting clothing, I'll have to look for them, he is such a ham he'll wear anything.

    One of the aides from Hospice came and she was scared of my ducks, the geese I could see but she didn't see them.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] OhMyGosh!! I need an Opie of my very own!!

    I hope you find the thingy that has more pics!

    How anyone can be afraid of ducks is beyond me! They always look happy/friendly.

    Hmm, yeah, maybe a young drake full of hormones. I guess I could see that.

    LOL...oh yeah, I can certainly relate. It will turn up when you least expect it. [​IMG] I truly have a need to see Opie in a sweater. LOL

    Oh my goodness I love this pic. He looks like superman in his mask and cape. I want a duck just like him. I hope you can find his other pics I would love to see them. Thank you so much for sharing this pic with us. I love Opie.

    I've even had people afraid of my chickens. A lot of times it comes from something that happened in their childhood.

    Yes Uno was laying flat out in the plate eatting his starter. The lazy days of summer I guess.
