    Walt, I keep meaning to put up a pic of lucky for you to see so you can compare him to a magpie, I'll try and get one when I get home from work. Hope you are well.

    My 23 Runners with their Saxony & geese friends. Upset because they can no longer go to the pond until I remove some turtles. Lost 2 this week a black and a fawn & white.

    I would never have thought that turtles can kill ducks. Shocking. Lovely ducks and geese though [​IMG]. Walt - finally have a pic, hold on...

    What do you think? Mr t behind him - the white one is similar too but not quite as dumpy as lucky.

    Cute.

    I have a question. My F&W Runner Girl has the pale beak. I'm noticing that it looks like algae is growing on it? Have y'all seen this and how should I clean it?
