    Today there was an advertisement on CL for a free white duck, six weeks old.

    So the story goes they have a pond and they bought 4 ducks. At age 4 1/2 weeks, they threw them outside and expected them to live on the pond and prosper, I think. Well coyotes got the other three and they advertised this one before coyotes got it too.

    Poor dear still cheeps/quacks and has some down. I cant imagine being throw outside at 4 1/2 weeks, with no protection or anything whatsoever. But anyway, I need to take pictures, I have her in quarantine, she is VERY unhappy, but at least she is SAFE. So much for my plan of only having pure breeds but I couldnt resist the poor dear.

    So I got an Easter present! [​IMG] They also gave me what was left of a 40 lb bag of feed, probably 15 lbs at least.

    By the way, Sioux City has a CL ad for a free goose or they will use him/her for target practice if not gone pronto. If I lived closer I would pick it up in a heartbeat but its close to Neligh, for anyone in that area, Newman Grove it said. [​IMG] SOME people! [​IMG]

    I would report that listing on the goose to the local animal control. If they stated that in their listing its animal abuse and you can't just use an animal as shooting practice. Please link the listing
