    So sorry about your ducks, Can you put some kind of fencing up between the ducks and dogs that the dog can't reach through and grab the duck? Lowes has plastic poultry fencing and plastic hardware cloth, using either of these along with your fence you have in place may keep it from getting another one, and Some dogs can climb real good too so be on the watch for that. Again I know how your feeling one of our dachshunds got one of our ducklings last year, broke my heart.

    Miss Lydia,
    I went and looked at that plastic poultry netting today. I may have to go that route.

    The girls knew something was up when we went out to clip their wings today. Couldn't even catch them! Usually they are on me like stink on a skunk because they know I have treats somewhere, lol. I even took meal worms out to them but was only stampeded by the older lot and my Pekim pigducks.

    Good news your ducklings leg is doing so much better, Palates are a good way to do physical therapy [​IMG] Keep up the good work sounds like it's paying off.

    I noticed that my old drake now gets bossed around by his son. He is still moulting, so maybe at the moment he simply lacks the right ammount of testosteron to fight back.
