The vet gave me a Pekin duckling that somebody abandoned at his office. The original plan was to give him to my friend that has other ducks. However, I have become attached to him. He has been adopted by one of my chicken hens. If he grows up and seems to be happy living with chickens, I see no reason for him to leave. DH totally disapproves. I think he is convinced that this little duck will be like a gateway drug to more ducks. Then he would have to build a duck house and dig a pond (Hmmm. Not a bad idea). Last night he was mowing and the little duck started to cry. It was kind of a mix between a peep and a quack. He got off the mower and came and asked me if we were going to have to put up with that constant noise! For crying out loud. I was watching him. He was on a loud riding lawnmower with a crowing rooster behind him, and he was complaining about Chester's tiny little noise! Men!! How could anybody not love this baby??!!
