    This is BLUE
    He is my oldest duck here he was given to me by a neighbor 2 yrs ago he is roughly 6 yrs old he is a blue buff
    He and I went through a lot when he first arrived he was skin and bone probably less than 2 pounds from being pushed out where he came from so he spent 2 weeks in my house in the hospital ward fattening him up. Now he is head of my flock and when I'm hand feeding treats he's so patient till I say his name and he will come forward for his he has a special place in my heart. Oh btw he knocks on my front door for treats Sorry so long

    Bert is a 7 week old Pekin drake and hes been very sick and lost two wives in the last month. Hes been suffering from foamy eyes, runny noses, and could hardly move. With everyones help here on byc we were able to help him to a new point in life where he is enjoying life again! He has a new kahki cambell girlfriend and everything.

    And he loves mud! He was un able to preen so getting baths and being blow dried werent his favorite thing. Hes my buddy and i love him . He hates having his picture taken tho

    @Jpat I've actually been keeping up to date on your thread and Bert. I'm rooting for him to get all better! You can post 2 entries, so if you want to add a pic of your other girls (even though they passed) you can.

    :) I will edit my post!. Actualy now that iam looking through photos they are all centered around bert haha. Hes always been the favorite

    Here is his second wife that we lost. Her name was Anti (As in AntiCh**t). Her favorite activity was endless squaking and her favorite treats were human fingers and the soft spots on the inside of your forearms.
    She was a pretty cayuga and i definitly like the breed!

    Its hard to beleive their were days i was convinced he wouldnt make it. I think mostly what helped was how completely calm he is while the females were always worked up amd hyper

    Breed: Call
    Sex: Drake
    Age: 5
    I love Casanova because he is beautiful and a great addition to my flock. He came from a pond and was never a pet. He lays close to my feet when I sit outside. Produces beautiful Ducklings. Not show quality but a definite winner in my heart..
