Hi all. Haven't been here in a few weeks. Life gets in the way sometimes. With 3 teenage girls still at home, the ducks, chickens and the rest of the zoo I get SWAMPED! I know I promised everybody pictures, but I am a bad duck Momma and just haven't taken anymore YET. Sorry. The ducks are are all doing great, growing and eating and making a mess. The Muscovies and the appleyard/Khaki are still in a little "pen" in the garage, I take them outside with me during the day, but they haven't moved to the outside duck house/pen yet. They've spent some time next to and peeking into the pen that holds the the older mallards, The younger ducks are curious, but the skittish mallards just seem to be scared of them too. Everybody will find their place I suppose, But I have a question about one of my Muscovies. The muscovies are MUCH friendlier than than the mallards and I adore them, but I have one that can't leave my legs, hands and arms alone. When I'm cleaning them, or feeding them or whatever this ONE is always nipping at my skin. It's usually just like little nips, but sometimes he gets a good pinch and makes me say OUCH and shoo him away. I just wondered if he's being mean or if it's just love nips? He doesn't run from me ( they all run TO me because they know I usually come bearing treats) and just seems to want to nip nip nip nip at me like he does everything else. I just didn't know if I should love him back or try to break him of doing it?
