    For those who missed the announcement Lame Duck has a new name, Sunsinger. First, here she is chillin' in her pool:


    The truly observant among you will have noticed the cluckers running away. That's because OldGal tossed some greens into the run. Sunsinger, not one to be left behind leaves her pool and joins them:


    We're not sure that Sunsinger knows she's a duck. She may think she's a chicken. She certainly thinks she's part of their flock.

    ya the baby ducks are big enough to hold there own if she attacks them. ducks aren't not like chickens in that the adult will not attack a smaller one because of its rank . ducks are more worried about there personal space. some adult ducks are aggressive towards strange younger ducks some can careless. you can try to introduce them, ducklings are usually nervous around adult ducks they never seen but after they chatter a bit and have something to do like play in a pool they while ignore each other. and focus on more important things like emptying the pool, and playing get the chickens wet
