Dumped Duck
« on: October 05, 2014, 03:13:33 pm »
Some 'kind' person has left what we believe to be a khaki Campbell drake outside our front door this morning (probably my fault for leaving a dog cage there  ::))
We've built a quick run, have a paddling pool and house for him and have a lady mallard ready to keep him company.....long story involving kids finding a newly hatched one in the summer!
Any tips folks? (not orange sauce recipes please)  ;)

Did they actually leave him IN the dog cage?


You already know how to look after him though, and the ones from Lanark last week should all be females, so......  :innocent:

KCs are VERY umm  loving sex crazed  :roflanim:  So for goodness sake either give him to someone with lots of ducks (female ones) or get the kids another female one each. One drake to 5 ducks is just about enough.  Although a few more girls would make his life (and theirs) much more enjoyable.
