    Hi there, does anybody have more info for me about mating and nests of the cape shelducks?? I used to think that they were egyptian geese as they almost look the same as chicks. But when they got feathers i saw that these egyptians aren't egyptians at all.

    I thought that they would have left the dam by now to look for new homes but only 2 males left, the 4 females and 2 other males didn't leave. I love them so much, each afternoon (dinner time) they let you know its time to eat and they run out of the dam in a straight line to there food dish waiting for me to feed them and they can sure make some noise when i take a little to long.
    Please help ....
