So it seems I may have a buyer for the ducks, they are wishing to pick up this next weekend, we shall see if it comes to fruitation. you just never know until cash is in hand. I am so sad to think of them leaving. We so love having ducks in the yard during good weather, chattering and muttering at us as we sit outside enjoying a glass of wine under the torch lights. I have many great memories of nights like that with my husband after we put the kids to bed, getting a few moments alone.
This could mean though that I can focus on the Silkies, maybe? They would enjoy the duck pen, and we could put the hard feathered birds into the large coop to lay us eggs for cooking. Sounds nice. Those Silkies can be so tough though.... I am worried by next fall I will be wishing they had sold instead of my water fowl friends.
