    so first thing this morning, they are dumber then rocks,

    now they won't come off the pond. it's close to dusk now. My patience is gone, the food bribe always works, nope not tonite.

    4 will go in. but the one female stays on the water, and calls them back out to her. Duck soup pretty darn quick. They are really testing my patience. Not a good day for poultry at my house.
    ( and no, I won't turn them into soup)

    and to top it off, I have an aggressive rooster towards me who needs to be eaten.

    phew , kay, I feel a bit better.
  2. It must be something in the water...I had the same problem tonight I couldnt get my 2 young drakes in so I put them in with my big ducks...scared them and they came to me tobe put in the tote to be taken in the house. They better not do it again or I will leave them in with them next time. They will soon learn.

    That had to be a pretty funny scene ( [​IMG] ) but you know it's true. Never thought about having to get them out of the water. hmmmm...yep, still funny!

    I hope my neighbors weren't watching me, I was sure not a happy camper, I think the ducks were laughing at me, as the pond is just big enough, that the longest of sticks can't reach them.

    I finally got them in , 5 minutes ago. the girls and one boy went on, the one drake stayed on the pond, bugger, so I locked him out.
    He's the one with the 'tude. So, he lunged at me a bit, I threw a bit of food down, then grabbed him, hahaha.

    I am sure they are having a good quack about it.

    and I'm glad I'm not the only one tonite having this issue, haha. Could it be spring fever, perhaps ??
