Yesterday I lost one of my 4 Muscovy ducklings. I gave all the birds watermelon rinds, which they love as a treat. We are finally getting much needed rain and when, I went out to check all the birds, no birds at the rind, but they were covered with Honey bees. Here in Brazil the Honey bees are Africanized honey bees(killer bees) and real mean. So I quickly hit the rind around until I could bag them, and most of the bees left, awhile later I saw one duckling nudging another, she had just vomited, and was acting lifeless, I brought her inside and she convulsed and died. I think she got stung by the bees, because they love the rinds the most out of all the birds. Thank God everyone else is Ok! Everyone stayed away from the bees, except as they we despersing, My crazy Jumbo Pearl Guineas were eating the few remaing bees they could catch!!!! So no more unobserved Watermelon rind Treats, unless I am there! Learning the HARD way! Oh, by the way Mama duck is sitting on 8 more eggs, due the 15th.
