    The other day I was visiting the run with my three year old granddaughter. My eight week old roo is developing quite a wattle. It just keeps getting bigger and redder all the time. My granddaughter took one look at him and said "Grandmom, that chick's funny. Look at his big tongue!" [​IMG] Try explaining a wattle to a three year old.

    I just thought I'd share.

    What funny observations have your kids/grandkids made about your flock?

    I don't dare laugh at that one. I was in my 20s when I saw a duck on top of another one in the pond behind our house. I thought he was trying to drown the other one. [​IMG]

    Don't feel bad. That's exactly what it looks like. I'd hate to be a female duck. Do the drakes at least say "hold your breath honey, here I come"?
