    My drake, donald has this bling obsession, right...he always goes after my diamond by the yard necklace, and thats not a big deal, he cant hurt it.

    BUT. last night, I go and clean their pen, and mr donald casually walks up and pecks at my necklace. Ok...then he catches a glimpse of my diamond earring and SNAP! He rips the thing out of my ear with a single bite. I ended up getting the earring back, but OMG did that freaking hurt!!! So now, I have a minor infection in that hole and it hurts like a SOB.

    I love him but......Dumb duck.

    My ducks are the reason I don't wear earrings. When they were babies they always wanted a nibble of my wedding ring, then as they got taller they found my necklace (which has no diamonds) so it dawned on my maybe it was a bad idea to wear earrings. It hurt bad enough when they yanked on my necklace I could imagine what it would do to my ears... ouch! Hope you feel better soon!!! [​IMG]

    Zippers and buttons on my clothing are what mine seem to go for first. With long hair- my ears are covered ... But I do have a piercing in my tounge and sometimes I poke it out to them just to get their attention...so funny...they sure do get up quick and run to the side of the brooder. I make sure I am always quicker though...no way do I want to know what a duckling chewing on that feels like.. [​IMG]

    Im almost worried to ask...how did you get the earring back?? I do hope for you that he didnt swallow it - but just dropped it on the ground after pulling it out. [​IMG] Hope the ear heals up quickly for you.

    [​IMG] So funny you posted this! My daughter got me a lovely set of earrings for Mother's day, and the FIRST night I wore them one of the ducklings ripped one right out of my ear! I hear ya, it hurts like HECK! They're strong little buggers aren't they?
