    Went out to feed water and check the beasts before I go to work...the Salmon fave had green slime on her chest. It looked like pus mixed with goo of some sort. Gross. Grabbed her, ran to the kitchen to bathe her in the sink and make sure she wasn't hurt...only to figure out it was....duck poop.
    why was she laying in duck poop.
    moron.

    I'm glad I don't have ducks. Mine are bad enough.

    Come on mommy, duck poop is warm and soft, and such a lovely shade of green.

    Quote:lmao the way the ducks just run over the poor chicks in a race to the food I sometimes gotta wonder what those poor chicks are thinking...I think I need an adult hen to put the ducks in their place. and the cat. and the dogs.
