    My little female callduck, Julie, flew out of my yard the other day and disappeared. Fortunately, someone saw my notice and my dogs and I found her downtown, behind the hardware store. The little dear was happy to be reunited with her boyfriend and the two geese.

    Did a wing trim on everyone except the grey goose, who is obviously incapable of flight.

    How often do you all trim wings. Didn't have that problem with previous ducks, but had to trim the Canada Goose wings.

    I trim my birds wings every few months, I just keep an eyeon the wings to see if i see any new growth. They dont grow back until they molt again. Im glad you got her back! [​IMG]

    Thanks! She's glad too. She was following the city worker around, I'm told. She was lost.
