    The Yard: The neighbors like to overlook our ducks and chickens, that is thier house there in the background.

    That is something I do not get, they would rather sit outside in the sun and pant rather than go under the awning or in thier box. I put them in the box when we set it all up for them but once I walked away from them they ran out and have not been back in since.

    The fence is a little too low/flimsy, as they do escape but they do not go far and we just corrall them back in. There are 2 small apple trees in their area that we hoped they would keep bug free. Well they have been doing a great job at that but also eating tree branches, so we had to recage the trees so they could not get to the limbs.

    They love it when I mow thier grass. I mow about every other week so it gets a little high, when the mower spits out a row of cut grass they go crazy forraging through it for bugs and munchies.

    Don't let the title fool you I love my yucky ducks. [​IMG]

    They are so commical especially when I clean out the kiddy pool and fill it with fresh water. They go totally NUTS!

    My ducks never go in their house either....unless I herd them in when there's going to be a blizzard. Then they complain about it....they'd rather be out in the snow.

    I would like to encourage you to put up a more sturdy fence. The netting it appears you have won't keep much of anything out. They're cute ducks and I'd hate for you to lose them.
