Our new batch of ducks have taken to finding their way on top of the goat house and hanging with goatsies.
I think that’s rather “odd” behavior since ducks aren’t the “roosting” type. During the day our chickens like to perch, hang on a couple old picnic chairs we’ve placed throughout the animal compound and our older ducks like to nestle UNDER the chairs.
But these new batch of girls they like doing things THEIR way. Now ALL the ducks are too hanging on top of the goat house!
After a bit of a ruckus start introducing them to the older ducks, they are all getting along nicely. In fact, these batch of gals are the friendlies and most gentle ducks we’ve ever raised! Instead of scattering when I walk into the compound to feed them, they all come to me, chattering – all excited to see “mummy.” We have a bit of a causal conversation, darned if I know what we are talking about but we do and they seem pleased.
