A week ago with discovered my Muscovy had ducklings. She came home with 3 ducklings we could not catch. A day or so passed, noticed only 2 ducklings! The next day after hours of chasing we managed to catch one. We tried to catch the other and couldn't. Today we decided to try again because she brought the last one up to my garden about 10 feet from the water's edge. I went in and got some food for mama. My husband, our friend, my daughter and her 2 girls all stood outside waiting on me, as I walked out... total shock... a Blue HEron comes up the pond's bank starts attacking mama, scoops up the baby and then takes off across the pond where it eats the duck!!!!??? I'm still in shock, I did not think a heron would eat a duck? Don't they just eat fish I asked my husband 100 times! We were all just blown away by that one. Seriously, I wonder if that bird ate the other missing one?! Anyways, so now the lone baby sits in a dog kennel and peeps. We're trying to find her a home where she won't be alone, I can't give her back to mama, she won't survive! https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=4601373#p4601373 That's where I have her available for anyone interested.
