    I would have Perkins or khakis but DW is fiercely against eating ducks because they are her favorite animal... And wintering ducks sounds too miserable to me!

    I was going to say she is " straight east of me about 20 miles or so" Then I realized what you were asking...duh,,,,


    I would love eating ducks, I just do not want to winter them either.

    I grew up raising and eating Pekins and was in my teens before we ever raised a chicken

    Grew them out from chicks each year

    I'm due in July. Not close enough....that's prime drinking beer while fishing time. I'll just eat more ice cream I guess.

    Ice Cream goes well with everything, not just beer, so that is a good choice!

    I just came in from Egg Collecting.

    I got my first Speclked Susex egg. Froze and cracked.

    I got a toad egg. but I had a second one. there is one Toad Mommy that refuses to use the nest and lays on the floor. Her egg is always cracked or frozen or both. I wish I could figure out which one it is and how to get her into a nest. ( I have nest eggs in them.)

    And one Creamette egg. Frozen and cracked.

    If you want I can get you a sexed trio or pair of Muscovy ducklings this spring. I will have chocolates, buffs and Blue fawns. Mine are also show quality. And I was right with the genders of all of mine. Vent sexing them is a piece of cake.

    Just buy a few ducklings each spring and they will be ready to butcher before fall.

    Minus 15 here this AM but up to zero now.
    Klop, did you say how it was you got a dislocated jaw? Something about saying the wrong thing to a lady friend?

    Ralphie, you do recall " Heatwave Bueller" don't you? But why is Klop familiar with him?
    It is a beautiful sunny day here. I may even let the chickens out of their run.

    Heatwave Bueller?

    I just remember Ferris. Was Bueller the last name of that weather man on, channel 6 I think it was?


    I think Kloppers is talking about the line Ben Stein had in Ferris Buellers day off. When he said that line there was complete silence, because Bueller was faking it.
