    It has been a warm autumn thus far and we are experiencing our first rain of the season, if you can even call it rain. California rain is nothing but a moderately heavy drizzle. Anyways, my backyard is at a slope, which means all the neighbors across the yard can see into my yard, making me the crazy girl with three ducks.

    I get a knock on my door this afternoon and it's one of the neighbors. She's pointing fingers at me for animal abuse and accuses me of not taking care of my ducks properly. She said watching those duck sit in the pouring rain was the saddest sight that she ever did saw. She did not believe me when I told her that my ducks actually love the rain and they are enjoying themselves very much at the moment. She threatened to call animal control if I didn't give them some shelter. LADY! do you not see the giant coop behind them full of warm fuzzy blankets???? [​IMG]

    They were sleeping inside by my backdoor and when it started raining they were jumping up and down begging to go outside. Silly things. Who else has ducks that love the rain??

    Whether rain or snow, my ducks sure don't like to come in out of it. The wet ground creates drilling opportunities to find grubs and play in the mud. [​IMG]

    Yep, they love the rain. Snowed this morning and I can guarantee they'll be out padding around in it.

    I hope you don't mind I wanted a copy of this photo for my own enjoyment. I have a crush on the Adventure Ducks.

    Maybe they will be on my desktop.

    Turbo's parents. All the ducks we just moved into the barn never used the shelters provided. Always looked out and they were standing or sleeping in torrential downpours. The saying" Great weather for ducks" is so true.

    For just 30 cents a day you to could help a poor misused and abused duck! Please help stop the madness!!


    Let me tell you it can be a hurricane and the guys (and gals) wake up from a dead sleep and play, play play!! It's funny because they do become little drilling machines. Trust me these guys love rain! All you see is their little butts sticking up in the
