exciting stuff going on out in the pens... I had
introduced new ducks Waverly & LeeLoo to Young Jeffrey
and Jodie-dee. The first day they all swam together and
had a great time, but then Y. Jeffrey got a bit too
amorous with them and scared them--they'd never rec'd
that kind of attention before!
Waverly and LeeLoo have avoided the pond ever since,
wandering around on shore all day. Jodie-dee's arthritis
is really bugging her (even with her meds), so she tends
to sit in the grass most of the day (I bring her meals
and water to her). And Y. J. doesn't want to go on the
pond if there aren't any girls there.
Waverly has fallen in LOVE with Y. J. and she was
splashing all around on the pond today--flirting with
him and luring him into her ducky clutches! LeeLoo is
swimming too, but keeping her distance from Y.J.
funny to watch Waverly flirting! She quacks LOUDLY and
bobs her head at him and she follows him everywhere! So
Bee is doing great! I bring Marvin inside every night
around 5:00 pm and he spends about two hours with her
before going back out to the barn. He's molting, so he's
pretty calm these days. But as soon as they get
together, oh the QUACKING!
