I went outside this morning and saw white feathers across the yard. I thought in horror it was out new silkie and something got it. But she was in the coop and just fine?! I know she was moulting some, but no way that much. I brushed it off... then I took my daughter for a walk around the pond and saw one of the ducks floating dead in the water. Now, we just moved here like 2 months ago, and the neighbors informed us that the ducks in the pond belonged to the previous home owners and in turn the neighbors say they are still our issue. Basically, they've been on their own for quite some time now and I claim no ownership of the animals. (I just feed them and enjoy their company.) Sadly, I would like to know what offed this one. My mother says we have LOTS of turtles and that they can pull the ducks under and kill them. Is this true? Did a turtle kill the duck? We do have an OVERWHELMING amount of turtles in the pond?
