    Just went out for my afternoon 'duck check'. Called, "duck, duck, ducks" several times, no response. Came back in got a handful of peas and lobbed them into the run off our back deck. Amazing how well peas work! They all came running! [​IMG]

    My muscovies are total pigs when it comes to tomatoes! I'll keep the peas for me![​IMG]
    Beautiful birds BTW!

    Thanks, farmdude, I think so too! Not sure I can share my tomatoes with the ducks, they were too hard to come by in the Pacific Northwest this summer. At least out of my garden!

    Quote:They only get the "reject" tomatoes. You folks had a cold summer, right? We had record heat. We just set a record for warmest October so far. I think your comment about spoiled ducks and not so spoiled husband is hilarious! You'd fit right in with my female friends. I tease them that their horses get more kisses than their husbands, they reply with; "Yeah, so what!?" [​IMG]

    Farmdude: yes, very cold and wet. We had maybe one day without rain (hence no sun) at our house until mid-late August. The ducks were happy though! Guess I would prefer wet to record heat. Did 15 years in Sacramento...shudder the thought. 120 degrees was fine when I was a kid and could spend the summer in the lake, river, pool!

    Re: The not-so-spoiled husband. I read the signature line to him. Husband-of-few-words just grunted. He was not amused. (But I am! I thought it was funny too! It was intended to be!)

    It goes both ways in this house. Dogs get more attention than the wife too! What can I say, we love our pets. (He's not inclined to consider ducks pets though! Keep hearing these 'farm animals' comments. "They are not supposed to be friendly, they are farm animals....")
