    Last night a fox got my first pair of ducks, Cheese and Crackers.
    We were home a little late, the ONLY night we haven't been there to put them away at sundown, and we couldn't find them.
    Now this morning there are ducky feathers and blood [​IMG] my poor little feather butts.



    and now I have to wait out the winter before I can get new babies [​IMG]

    You could always look around on here and craigslist for some adults. Where are you located?

    I live in Colorado. We have decided its best to wait until spring, because I love raising duckies from little babies but the winter here is pretty nasty, and we want them to be full grown adults before they experience it for the first time.


    Thank you all for the condolences, it means a lot. Most people don't really understand why I was so attached to them.
