    Why won't they let poor Limpy play. I see him alone in the back.

    Limpy is now the watch drake!
    He feels responsible for the whole flock - except for Erpelchen, the other drake who he seriously dislikes.
    When the girls are eating their meal-worms or other treats, Limpy stands as upright as he can and watches out for any predators.
    Don't worry, i sneak some treats into his bill too from time to time…

    What a bunch of beautiful ducks you have collected. Who is the flashy black and white crested? Give Limpy a meal worm from us, He is so cute.

    Those breeds are spreading like wildfire. I have 3 of them magically appear too!

    That is PomPom, the left-side crested Magpie.
    Limpy says "Thank you!" - gave him precedence with the meal worm container this morning.

    Even after a bath in clean water they still have brown dirt marks, that loam here is so sticky, think i scrub them down with some peroxide this evening… ;)
