    Here are some pictures that I took this morning of all my birds...there are some of my geese and donkeys too (Plus the giant holes that the donkeys dug inthe pasture) [​IMG].

    You can even see the neighbor's alpacas.

    Those ducks are adorable!! Do you need to clip the mandarins wings to keep them put?

    Quote:No, I have a net over the enclosure. I like them to be able to fly a bit...and they do every once in awhile. They mostly waddle though! [​IMG]

    WriterofWords - I never wanted calls either until I watched someone's Youtube videos of them playing in a bucket and I just thought that was the cutest thing ever! Ever since I got them I can just stand out there and look at them for hours. They are so DEMANDING too. [​IMG] They HAVE to be the first ones fed or they raise such a ruckus! I think my runners believe they are bantams because they were hatched with some of those calls last summer.

    My other three runners with the geese just stand by the aviary wondering how the heck they ended up on the "fox" side of the pen...LOL...I should really put them in with the others but I'm afraid that would be too many ducks for the space. It is only a 30X40 pen and I have 3 pairs of mandys, one pair of woodies, a trio of runners, and 8 or 9 calls.
