    Both did. First the one was on it and we heard the cracking sounds coming on. Then the second one came on and it went downhill from there. Had a good laugh. After that they mixed it all up, the others joined in, and the usually sexual routine took place. The ice hunks did not slow him down a bit. [​IMG]

    Quote:Last winter was my first winter with ducks of my own. I couldn't believe that when we had 2 feet of snow on the ground they were just hanging around outside all day, swimming and lazing about in the snow. They had a nice warm, bedding and box filled, tarp and hay wrapped pen to keep warm in too. When they wanted out of the snow during the day they'd just hop up and poop all over my porch. [​IMG]

    I worried myself to death last winter over those ducks. This year I know they take the cold much better than I do. (oh, and Hattie... I hate snow too!)

    And Katharinad, I think your ducks and your place (and that big golden dog of yours) are beautiful. [​IMG]
