Just a quick thought😂

Today I was in a shoe store that sells only shoes, nothing else. A young girl with green hair walked over to me and asked, "What brings you in today? I looked at her and said, "I'm interested in buying a refrigerator." She didn't quite know how to respond, had that deer in the headlights look.

I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it.

When people see a cat's litter box they always say, "Oh, have you got a cat?" I just say, "No, it's for company!"

Employment application blanks always ask who is to be called in case of an emergency. I think you should write, "An ambulance."

The older you get the tougher it is to lose weight because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

Have you ever noticed: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he knows when he's really in trouble.

Did you ever notice that when you put the 2 words "The" and "IRS" together it spells "Theirs?"

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way and a lot of the roads were not paved.

Ah! Being young is exciting but being old is comfortable.

Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

May you always have:

Love to share,

Cash to spare,

Tires with air,

And friends who care.

She is a White Layer, is she?
I was told she was a Pekin by the person that gave me the eggs. She weighs 5 lbs according to her recent vet appointment. Either way, she's one ornery feather fluff

Oh how precious! And welcome to this crazy thread. How is your little one doing?
She's doing great aside from some bumblefoot we're treating. I knew birds had strong personalities (I have a parrot) but holy crap, ducks are their own level of "bird."

Lord have mercy, you are so right! I thought my chickens ran this place, well they did until the ducks came along. Now, it’s all about the ducks...and nothing else!

...and Their Love Affair With Water!

This is my second day owning ducks and I have fallen head over heels in love with them!

Those precious little peeps, the interesting looking bills, the ever so delicate looking webbed feet, and those expressive eyes with their heads cocked sideways peering up at me. Oh, and did I mention their little love ‘bites’ on my neck and lips (OUCH!) That I must not let continue so I suppose I have to stop kissing them. I know, I know, I’m not supposed to kiss them, but the way I look at it my chances are better catching Covid 19 from a stranger than catching salmonella from my baby ducklings.

My little Saxony duckling, Twinkle, is seeing the world straight today for the very first time. Since arriving home a little over 24 hours ago, she has been in a sort of vertigo state, staggering, stumbling, turning in circles, and not being able to hold her head straight.

With the help of several BYC members giving me suggestions and instructions to help her mend, she appears to be on the road to recovery...the road to being a normal, healthy, funny little duck.

I will continue my journey of being a First Time Duck Owner/Spring 2020 duck thread here. My initial thread can be found here for all the background story of My Love Affair With Ducks!

Love at first sight! View attachment 2072190

This was my morning, when the sound of subtle quacks was heard. God I love them all.
Oh me oh my, I LOVE it. See, that is just precious to me! And, reminds me of here. My chickens and ducks absolutely rule around here.

I also love that runner. What kind is it?

I hear what you are saying and it’s so very true. My duckies are now almost 9 months old and my one “oops” drake runs this farm. The tiny little rasper is big man on campus. Someone told me that’s the way it would be too. I can’t remember who though. My roosters even run when they see him coming. :lau

And a big welcome to this crazy thread!

Have you attended treatment? Are you safe?

Did you intentionally get these dux? Or did someone dump them on you?

Drop whatever you’re doing and get to a DA meeting now. It’s for your own good.

The rate of infection by dux is getting out of hand. I need an assistant to help combat them.

If you’re interested in a rewarding career saving the world from dux, can live on no pay and like working under a warm and caring guy (me).

Apply today.

You will get the fancy title of Assistant Dux Extermination Counsoler.
