I get to laugh at this because my kids WERE the hellions. lol
They are adorable, Congrats!! and Welcome to BYC!
Mine love worms earth worms, meal worms, crickets, grass hoppers ,salamanders, I try to keep them from eating the salamanders.Frogs and many other things.
Have you thought about clipping one wing on each ducks that's flying out? it's easy to do then they can't fly over the fence and put themselves in danger of being eaten.
I did think of having their wing clipped but I don't know how. Would have to get the vet to do it which includes a ranch call. My hubby was quite tempted to eat them. Especially the main hellion, Winchester. We have most of those goodies up this way. I don't know if we have salamanders but once it gets warm there are plenty of lizards. There are a lot running about with short tails ... cats.
I did call the vet but haven't gotten a return call yet. She does own ducks and is qualified to deal with ducks.
Hubby has asked me several times about the ability of the other breeds to fly. I told him I didn't think any of them were the type to take airborne! Now let's hope I didn't tell any fibs!
I've got to get my back bedroom ready for the next group of little ones. Vacuuming, bring in supplies, etc. What fun!
You don't need a vet to clip most all us do our own. good pair of sturdy scissors.
Clipping the flying wings is temporary and pinioning the wings would be a permanent solution...and requires a vet. Some will do it, some will not.
Thank you! any idea of the mystery ducks breed?
It last from molt to molt and that's a year for me fall to fall
