    I've got a female rouen expressing hostile behavior. She's tried to drown a chicken in the waterer, pulled feathers out of other birds, and bites at fingers. This behavior just started about four days ago, and I'm very much not willing to allow it to go on. It's not like I have a shortage of female ducks around here. I'm estimating her current weight at about 6 pounds. She's not my biggest duck, but she's certainly not the smallest either.

    That first one, served with new red potatoes, sounds like it might be the one.

    How fast do ducks grow? Six weeks and already 6 pounds?!! That is insane! Maybe we will raise ducks for meat instead of chickens if that's the case. wow.
