    Help! My 5 new gentlemen Indian runner ducks were let out unintentionally a few hours after they were introduced to their new home and did not come home for the night! Pleeeeaaaase someone tell me they're smart enough to come home in the morning??? I just adore them and am sick to my stomach :)

    If you just got them i wouldnt count on it. Did you go looking for them? Do they have a pond or something they went to

    I found them!! The next day I found them on the road at our driveway and chased them through the bush all day and the next. Ended up catching two. This morning I found two of the remaining three beside the duck run chatting with their brothers! Unfortunately my beautiful mallard coloured boy was killed by a neighbourhood dog whose owners called me very upset and apologetic. So it was bittersweet this weekend. Thanks everyone for your help!

    I'm thrilled we got as many back as we did. Just another lesson learned. I learn something new every day with my lil hobby farm!
