Okay so I've been mainly posting on the chicken side because I recently got 17 baby chicks (first time chicken owner). So today while we were replacing the walls on our old shed turned coop... Guess who waddled up to see what on earth all the banging was about? Two ducks. I think they are mallards but I do know that there was a pair. Male and female. My neighbors had a duck house and left for Arizona, leaving several people friendly ducks free to come and go as they please. So they moved into a different neighbors pond and made themselves at home for the past several weeks. I'm not sure if they were looking for handouts or were just curious. Either way, we fed them a little bread (I've heard its not the best thing for ducks but it's all we had on such short notice). The female ate from my hand but the male was a bit more cautious. My pics aren't great cause it was getting dark and I didn't want to scare them with the flash.
