    I was working outside near the duck run, when I heard them start making a commotion. As I approached, I heard squealing that I didn't think would be coming from a distressed duck.

    It wasn't -- they were playing a game of "Let go my Eggo" with a live vole. After a couple of minutes running around like something from a Benny Hill sketch, the "lucky" duck swallowed her prize, the tail going down real, real slow.

    Gross but highly amusing![​IMG]

    The ducks found a huge frog in their pool today... Poor Frog!

    I'm gonna have to let the ducks free range to eat the voles! Voles everywhere!

    I know how my girls are with a frog, so I can guess what you watched with the vole

    I thought it was gross watching them eat the big June Bugs flying around everywhere or the big grub they pulled out of the ground...I don't know if I could handle a vole! [​IMG]
