They sound beautiful. ny egg lady has some silkies too. The old lady across the road threw her scraps out in the back yard. She thought it was cute when my ducks took their babies over there to eat the scraps but when she had a yard full of big azz ducks scrounging it was a different story. She said they were eating her pears. I asked if I could bring over a ladder and pick the pears & lay them on newspapers on her screened in porch to ripen and she said "No, I like them to drop one or two at a time". Neighbors were criticizing me (in my hearing) for allowing my ducks to harass an old lady. I had 6 acres & a pond but my ducks could not resist the temptation to cross the road for those treats. I could have put them in the chicken house but they would have been miserable cooped up. They were BIG ducks, esp. the drakes.
I guess I am lucky because my duckies stay home LOL.. I am madly in love with my geese tho.. they follow me around and squawk at me all the time.. they will sit in my lap and they nuzzle me.. it makes me giddy..LOL they make me laugh so much.. and my muscovy girls just had babies so I am filled to the rim with babies right now
