    I was so happy about the ducklings doing well, then I go out to tuck in the big ducks for the night and my drake, Courage, is dead. The wind blew over a big section of fence onto him. Flat no life in him. What a stupid crummy random way to go. I am so sad I can't stop crying. He was such a good boy, so good to the girls and so handsome. Stupid darn fence I guess I'm lucky they all weren't under it they are always going everywhere together. The girls will be so lost without their leader.
    I don't know why I'm writing this just had to get it out.

    I'm so sorry. That is a crummy way to go. Poor guy. Not your fault though, sometimes these things just happen that are beyond our control. [​IMG]

    I just keep second guessing...I should have seen it was weak or something, but it was fine...just random.

    Poor sweetie! He probably held the fence off of his girls and saved every one of them! At least look at it that way and there's Courage and honor in it. I'm so sorry for you all.
