    My ducks like to roost inside my covered back porch (close to the people... awwww.) I started noticed last week that they seem to be late sleepers, I find them still snoozing at noon! Well, DH and I stayed up late last night watching the netflix, when we heard a very distinct duck noise. I stuck my head out the door to count beaks, and found that my ducks have decided to beat the Phoenix heat by becoming owl-ducks. My back porch light I'm sure has a lot to do with it! Even my little 4 week old ducks were turbo-ing around cleaning up every last moth and bug.

    I'll have to get some video tonight!

    Our ducks seem to be more active at night than our chickens if there is some light available.
