I have duck duty this week. My son and his girlfriend are in Florida, so the grandducks are my responsibility for ten days. Thankfully they live just ten minutes from me so going there morning and evening isn't too bad. (I wonder if they will be home this weekend as planned. They are not sure if they will be able to get gas. Hopefully by then things will begin to return to normal.)
I have three grandducks, 'Lil Bit, Sadie and Phillipe. Sadly duck #4 Scrooge was attacked by a hawk a few weeks ago, taken to the avian vet but had to be euthanized. I must say, ducks are messy creatures 😒
First thing when they are let out in the morning, they head for a swim.
They do love tomatoes. They devour them in seconds.
This morning I had no tomatoes for them, just some lettuce. They stood there, looking at me and I swear I could hear them quacking, "WTH, grandma. Where are the tomatoes?".
I even get to play farmer Lauren and gather eggs. I grew up on a small farm, and don't ever remember gathering the eggs. I guess one is never too old . . . lol!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs and quacks 😊
