    hello peoples as u most likely guessed im new...yay. I have 4 Whole ducks (there snowy mallards) there all boys, they enjoy ganging up on my 4 chickens and doing naughty things. luckily my chickens had a growth spurt are bigger then my ducks, and my ducks now leave them alone (i wonder why). The ducks also enjoy biting my dogs ankles. They flee from me when i try to catch one, i have to military crawl through grass and dirt, (and since it rained, mud) then snatch them. After i catch them and am able to hold them there completely content (or just so scared they don't know what to do except freeze) now when i put the one i was holding down it rushes to its brothers and they all talk to each other (quack, if you prefer that) there probably saying something along the lines of,

    Duck 1: "Omgg shes so TERRIBLE she held me!!!"

    Duck 2: "yea she feeds us everyday and refills our pool all the time in the texas heat of the summer ITS HORRIBLE!!!!!"

    Duck 3: "yes shes so evil....OH NO HERE SHE COMES"

    Duck 4: "RUNNNN"


    -is just walking to turn off the hose-


    Now my chickens are okay i used to have 6 but a darn chihuahua murdered 2 of them, i found there rotting corpses in the back of my yard, how lovely
    My chickens do sometimes chase after me, and theirs a look it there eye that just says "ive hurt more people then you could dream of"


    now i also have 6 lovely chicks who actually like me and follow me, in the nice way

    other then poultry i have 2 dogs 1 cat and 1 "pot belly" pig.

    i pretty much only talked about my pets......

    no matter how terrible my pets are i still love em' all

    Welcome! And watch out for the drakes having their way with you chicken hens, their anatomy is VERY different and can severely hurt a chicken

    Best of luck!!!
