    I have 2, no 5 ducks on my lawn. The female, Selene, is a bit a screamer. When she really wants food she does the duck equivalent of "GIMME FOOD GIMME FOOD CAN"T YOU SEE I'M A POOR STARVING DUCK FEED ME!". At 6:30 am. On a weekend.

    My neighbors are probably really upset. Any ideas on how to stop them from quacking that early?







    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Forgive me if this is too simplistic. Can you supply food with water 24/7? And are they in a safe shelter? My Runners will holler if they feel insecure.

    I supply food and water and food as often as possible and when I peeked out at them after they had finally quieted down one of them was drinking out of the water dish. As for them being in a safe shelter, well.... ya see.... I dn'tallyownthem. They're a flock of wild ducks who appear to have taken a liking to our yard and food. I swear, it started off as two! Then there was three, then five.... So, ya... Can't really shelter them.

    They've finally stopped screaming and have left but they'll be back... Any other ideas? [​IMG]
