Hi! My name is Leigh and I have been using this forum to search for answers since we got our 3 little buggers (as my dh refers to them ) about 3 weeks ago. So far they seem happy and healthy if not a bit challenging from time to time. Case in point, tonight, when my dh tried to call them in from the pond he found one frantic little duck looking for it's mates. After over an hour of searching and not finding the other 2 I came home to try and calm the lone "survivor". Since he was not willing to leave the pond where we assume he last saw his friends, I walk towards there while whistling the call I use to bring them in. Low and behold 3 happy little ducks came swimming across the pond to me and followed me back to the house. We cannot figure out what would have caused them to separate as they are never more than a few inches from each other! I'm so happy they are safe and sound, but I am hoping someone can shed some light on what might have caused this. Glad to have this forum available! I know it's been a great resource so far!
