    I observe or anthropomorphize situations with my ducks all the time. It seems like a soap opera. Well, it was suggested by @cayugaducklady that I start a thread of such things. I believe that this was in jest, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought something like this might be fun... So rather than me writing a novella on my ducks here, let's make this a picture thread (at least 1 picture is required per episode.) And we can all post drama scenes with our flocks. Since I don't have anything prepared at the moment, I will direct you to one of my prior episodes where you can see the conflict between my two drakes over two new girls being introduced to the flock and how the non-dominant drake gets his way.

    This would also be a great place to introduce new members in established flocks like:

    And losses of old friends such as:

    Along with heart warming stories like:

    I would expect to see lots of [​IMG], [​IMG], [​IMG]and [​IMG]on this thread.

    Bite into this thread like Tevye going for a piece of lettuce...

    Great story. I can't imagine having multiple groups of 'lings at the same time.

    Thank you very much. Now that the babies are grown and adopted out they have all come togeather. Except they have their subgroups within the flock. Topper a female runner runs her group of ducks and they hang togeather like a click. Then we have the other group which is now run by Sonny. They all sleep in the same coop but each subgroup hang out with their friends in the yard.

    Of course I should shamelessly plug my baby book as a very big drama:

    When I say plug, I am not actually selling it, I had 2 hard copies made: one for us and one for my mom. But if you click on the picture, you get the whole PDF file for free [​IMG].

    Thank you, from your avatar looks like you have a little poof-head yourself [​IMG] Once they are loaded on youtube, I will have a couple videos staring him and Kaine (plus the rest of the flock) that I made to help people voice sex their ducks. I expect it will be about an hour or so...
