Hey all, It's an awesome day out right now! A tad hot though. It's sitting in the low 80's. I was out with Sunny, keeping her some company when I rememberd a few other questions. I live in Central Florida, and like all of FL, it gets pretty hot out during the summer. It's usually in the high 90's-100 on a typical day. She was a house duck for most of the summer, so how would she handle it? Should she be kept inside? Another question, she laid her first egg about 4 days ago. I was so excited, but she hasn't laid an egg since. I also hear a lot that ducks need to be exposed to sunlight a lot to lay eggs often. Ever since she did lay, I'm keeping her out in the light as much as possible. I'm also mixing a little crushed cuttle bone for extra calcium. The egg she laid was relatively soft. When should I expect her to lay if I keep this up? Next few days? I'm heading out of town next week, for 12 days. She's going to stay with some friends. Like I mentioned before in another post, she's a pretty protective duck. And only allows my family to touch her. What would be the best way to introduce her to them? She loves peas too, should I make them give her some? And the last question...how would I make her "nice" to my dog? He's 12, and is a really good dog. He wouldn't touch her when Sunny was just a duckling. Now, he's afraid of her. She's always picky at his paws and he tries his best to get away. I kinda want them to be good "friends" maybe not love eachother, but at least get my dog to know she's not out to kill him. Thanks for the help guys.
