    We went away for the 4th of July weekend. We took the dogs and let the ducks have free range of the yard. A neighbor came and checked on them twice a day.

    Since then, there is no keeping them locked up. They want to be with the chickens and will lay by their run staring at them all day, at least until I get the hose out.
    I spoil the little jerks. Badly. I make mud puddles for them every morning. I pull handfuls of weeds and gurass out and toss them in the already demolished garden.
    but I'm mean to. I catch them and make them let me hold them.
    It didn't go so well for me yesterday. Doctor(the peking) climbed on my shoulder, and in the process left a huge gash from my ear to my collar bone. I knew their claws were sharp, but didn't think they were that bad.

    pictures of the little jerks(said with all affection, I'm actually quite attached)
