After a trip to New Zealand a few years ago, PD (pre-digital), we returned home and bought some ducks. We were entertained by a small flock on a south island beach and thought it would be fun to own some. Eventually we lost them all to coyotes.
My husband decided this summer that he wanted more ducks. With both kids gone I didn't think it was such a great idea. I mean, really, we already did ducks, right?
So one duck condo and secure pen later we are now the proud owners of 17 ducks. I was out there this morning sliding around on water covered ice filling up their swimming pool. I have a great fear of falling out there without the hope of rescue.
