    I have a pekin duck (5 weeks old) that was missing this morning. No signs of struggle no feathers and the other 5 were still out there. Of course i was sad and was going to get some more this afternoon. I put the other 5 in the pen just in case something wanted them. i just walked outside to find the pekin (whose name is now houdini) not only outside but in the pen with the others. I know im not crazy. lol

    Last week I put the dogs out. A while later I couldn't find one of them. I looked ALL OVER the property (6 acres, all fenced). I checked in the dog crates. The dog was nowhere.

    I put the other dogs up in their crates, so I could hear the missing dog if he was stuck in an outbuilding or running around the perimeter or something. I kept looking.

    No dog.

    A few hours later I gave up, and went back to let the other dogs out of their crates.

    And the missing dog popped out of a crate, looking like "What??? What did I do???"

    I swear, there is a long lost secret critter trick these guys have, allowing them to dematerialize and then re-materialize when it suits them!

    Quote:That sucks, I brought home a pekin today, and Zilla, my wolfdog lets it lay on him and cuddle... Seem to be getting along great, but then again, all of my animals are confused... I got a dog that picks fleas of the cats, a cat that tries to nurse 7 wild cottontail bunnies that we have been nursing for a little over a week, and another cat that likes to cuddle with Iggy, my iguana... Im just glad they all get along so well, lol
