my new duck

Postby pat » Thu Apr 04, 2019 9:09 pm

I got a Muscovy female duck a few months ago. she is actually pretty. she is black. she don't have the weird beak like some do.
she is a very strange duck. she loves being in the house :roll: I let her in at night. She loves Lucy my beagle. she tries to lay on Lucy's cot,
but, Lucy barks at her. so the duck (Mable is her name) . Mable waits for Lucy to fall asleep, then sneaks up next to her :roll:

I have a large piece of cardboard with her food and water. she does stay on the cardboard (after Lucy kicks her off her cot. :lol:

when I get a chance, I will post a picture of her.

I like ducks a lot. If I ever own a house with some property, I'd like to have a few.

of course I like them to. I also have two peking ducks and a goose. (they live outside) I can't seem to get
Mable (my house duck to go outside :roll: )

I have a pond, which of course they love. I have a problem with a wild fox, I think killed one of my pekin ducks.
I put Donnie's litter around at the edge of the pond, so hopeful if I keep up dumping, it will keep the fox away.
as long as the ducks are in the pond, the fox won't bother them.

I have a fake alligator at the pond now. it use to move (but, it quit working) I want to find another one, and maybe a couple fake owls? :shrug:

I have pictures of Mable (my duck) sleeping with Lucy and even one of my cats :roll: will try and post later.

She sounds super cute! I had a couple chickens that had to come inside (when the weather was cold (for mom's and babies) or they were injured or sick) and I always liked it. Chickens and ducks make great pets.

.

where did you keep your chickens when they come in the house? I have chickens too, but also have an outdoor house for them filled with straw to keep them warm. I did have a rooster come in one time (through the doggie door) I found him napping in the cats litter box :roll:

I too have always liked chickens, ducks, geese. well I love all animals.

My momma hen would stay with her babies in the basement (she decided to go broody during the winter). Her disabled daughter also lived most of her life down there. I had a number of chicks, including a few disabled ones, that lived in my bedroom to get the care they needed. They really liked to try to eat the incubator and loved the little logs I gave them to perch on.

If you really want a house pet chicken or duck, they sell chicken and duck diapers now :D I was actually thinking about getting a small chicken for a pet before I decided to go for my dream of a fennec while I still could.
