Well about two weeks ago, we bought some organic cherry tomatoes from Costco for the ducks. I took some out and cut them in half and the ducks completely turned up their noses at them. Guess that wasn't a hit. Well we ate a couple, but still had most of this two pound container. I looked at them today, and there was no mold on them, and they looked fine other than they were getting a bit wrinkly and soft - not real bad, but pretty ripe. I decided to see what would happen then. I went outside and the ducks were all excited (I could go out with a piece of cardboard and they would be all excited until they found out what it was ). I fed one to Snow and she gave it a squish and swallowed it down. Well I thought, there weren't any rough edges on them and if they managed to swallow one whole, it was soft enough it wouldn't stay that way long. I put a few of them on the ground for the general populace. They played with them a while then one or two bit down hard and broke them, then gobbled them down. The others followed suit and pretty soon all the ducks (except the Rouens - hmmm) were eating them. I paid special attention to the runners because they are small enough that I thought there could be choking problems. Actually the runners seemed to like them best of all and were very good about squishing them before swallowing, especially Noir and Mystique who probably ate half of the tomatoes. Mystique had her chest completely covered with seeds and tomato mush before I got the camera out. So here are some pics of their first cherry tomato party... Dove Entie Greta Mystique Noir Pocahontas Rhiannon Roxette Snow And Tevye of course had to wear around a tomato skin like lipstick through the whole thing. See, it isn't my imagination... No ducky else did this. Tevye is always the one doing something strange.
