    Aside from getting my first egg yesterday and another one this morning, my little flock of 4 has earned a permanent place in my yard. We had a little stretch of warm weather the last couple of days and weeds and bugs are popping up. I just saw all four of the ducks going through my landscaping eating up every ant, rolly polly and weed poking through the mulch. They didn't even mess the mulch up that bad!

    Good duckies!!!

    Hey...there is a lady in my town that rents out her goat herd to clear areas of noxious weeds. Why not a little fluffy butt crew of landscaping ducks for smaller areas?

    I thought a Slug Patrol Rental Duck company would do great in Oregon. [​IMG]

    If I hatch out some eggs from the khaki, I will have to train them to hop in a crate on command and teach them what "go get the slugs" means. [​IMG]
