    Here is a photo of my Call duck, Callie (don't mind the goose):

    She is going to be 7 years old this summer. Anyone else have an elderly duck they wish to share?

    Me, too! I've seen a couple here and there, but having them all posted together would be sweet. [​IMG]

    This is big ugly. I got him from the local duck pond.. the Monastary that owned the pond said he has been there for at least 6 years... So I think he is about 7- 7 1/2 years old... And he just got a new girlfriend who he likes to "show off" to. :D

    I think Big ugly is very handsome.

    Thanks!
    He wasn't so when I first got him. Lots of love and decent food and clean water got him to be so white and fluffy!

    I remember when you posted pics of him when you first got him, he has really come into himself. I love my big guys.. [​IMG]
