The ducks are responding really well to their permanent quarters. Living in close proximity to the other birds and pigs has made all the difference. Not to mention me dragging my hoses through here twice a day.They have three sources of water in here. My theory is that they will stay close to water and so far it is working.
Though they do have to share the watery wallows with pigs!
Their swimming pool is fenced off in such a way that they can get in and out but bad Tima cannot.
Their little pool is where the real action is!
A couple of times a day Boo and I practice herding them to their house. Their swimming pool is right next to their house so they are always happy to go there. Boo is being very good. He is told to sit and stay in exactly the position that will deflect them through their gate. He is certainly not allowed to actively herd BIRDS! But he sits obediently and looks intense.
There is no more hysteria and I am feeling much more positive about ducks now.
My internet took so long to load these photos that now I am out of time to chat. I will be back at second breakfast!
Tomorrow morning early we take Aunty Del and Tia across to the bull. They will stay there a few weeks and hopefully breed.
I hope you have a lovely day.
