I came home from work last night and noticed Sahara, my khaki campbell with something in her mouth.
When I got closer, she had a mouse in her bill and was working on eating it! The other ducks were around her (i guess to see if she dropped it) but she just kept working with it until she swallowed it! It's good to know that no mouse is safe with my ducks around but it was disturbing at the same time!EWWWWWWW

Shudder!

My runners seem to go after mice, also. They don't seem to care how long it has been dead, either.

Is that normal for ducks? I mean... I wouldn't like eating their eggs if I ever saw them doing such a disgusting thing...

Why disgusting? It's the natural food chain and the protein is good for them.

well i can kinda understand that.. i know the crunching sound of mine eating snails.. leaves me going ick! I had a dog grab a mouse and swallow before too.. that grossed me out lol BUT i wouldn't stop using their eggs because of it
