Dewey duck was sticking her bill in the feathers all around Missthings crop and neck it was just soooo weird any one got any idea what was going on?? Lol

    Just make sure Dewey is not a young Drake....Drakes have a Penis and Chickens are not made to that type of breeding.....Drakes can Kill Chickens.....


    Cheers!
