    My Ladybird (blue swedish) is 11 years old now and Lath (penciled runner) is 10.

    Who else has elderly ducks?

    Has anyone else ever had an elderly female duck develop a drake curl? Ladybird started getting one when she was about nine. It's even more curly than Lath's!

    My oldest passed when she was 10........well she had lived with us for 10 years. The folks we got her from could not remember if she was a year or two years old. [​IMG] So we just counted the years she lived with us.

    Thanks for the welcome back. I was really active here in about 2003-2006. Then I just got busy with life and fell off the map. Although I'm still quite addicted to my fine feathered friends.
