Love the pics and this story too, we also had pet ducks raised from little ducklings when I was a kid. They were aptly named Quacky and Cukoo. They would come when they were called and chase us around the yard until we picked them up and gave them hugs and kisses.... every night they were rounded up and put into their ducky coop. They were gentle BUT I watched them on numerous occasions chase large dogs out of our yard. This story brought back such great memories, thanks Deb

I thought taking our turtle with us was odd.

There is a real life ancient castle in England, restored ages ago & still owned by one of New York's zillionaire families (I forget the family name now). Beautiful place, actually 2 castles in a lake, the 2 buildings joined by a kind of walkway. ANYWAY ~ the relevant gist is that at least in the 1980's they had a large flock of black geese. Not only beautiful to see swimming around the lake in such a setting, but we were told they can be very loud & aggressive in protecting the property.

Hi!! Yes, a fun thread do keep it going!!!... ages ago I'd moved to the country and had a few chickens... being originally a city kid, I was surprised at how smart they could be... a wandering dog came by and was attacking the flock and one of the pet ones came to the house squacking up a store at the screen door... I went out to see what was going on? AHHH!!! chased the dog off... I'd reaised that chicken from an egg on top of the refridgerator in a box (for warmth and with a light bulb..it works!!!)... two of them... part silkies... they both always came to the porch door and squacked to get in when it was time to lay an egg!!! no piccys,sorry... my cousin lives in Port Angeles..lovely area... ok, keep having fun, gail

Trying to remember how to post pics.

Some of you folks asked for pics of Frosty and Falco, but I have been so busy that I am just now getting around to trying to put them up. I apologize for being so late on this.

I knew how to post pic's on this forum a long time ago, but I forget, so it may take me a bit to research it all over again.

Cheers....

Hey there "Gator"
Here's how I post pictures:
Look up at the tool bar when you are typing your "Reply to Thread."
Next to the white smiley face, there is a paper clip.
Click on that and you should see a drop-down menu where you can attach pictures from your computer. Make sure each picture fits the size requirements listed or the up-load will fail.
Good luck and can't wait to see the pics.
It will be just ducky! lol

Thanks, I tried but now I have to figure out how to make the file size correct. Silly, I do this so seldom that I simply don't remember how----but I will figure it out.

This thread is for the birds...but keep it!!!!!!!!

I raised a duck when I was a boy. My dog and the duck were great friends.
We brought the duck to live on a pond with hundreds of other ducks.

My old house was near the Raptor Trust, a hospital for injured birds of prey
On the road to my new house is a Pheasant Relocation park. The name of the road......Eagle Road.

Frosty and her gang....

Well, I FINALLY figured it out. I also noticed that if you click on the given photo it gives a better rendition.

Darn, they were here and then poof, they are now gone.

I will try it ONE more time. If this doesn't work it's going to have to wait for "Yes Dear" to get home from work... she's the brains in this family... and the cook. ;>)

BTW... the last pic with the black duck is Frosty's best friend, Bashful. They hang out all the time and they insist on sleeping in the same duck shed.

That gal is my bride.... she's let me hang out with her for 40 years. I call her "Yes Dear" and she spoils me rotten.... she wrote the check for the Airstream. ;>)

When I brought up the idea of raising 2 birds about 1 1/2 year ago, she was reluctant, but she gave in. We now have 60 birds and she loves it. I won. ;>)

Wow! You have quite a brood there. Or is it a flock? Anyway it looks like fun. "Waddle" they think of next? Yes...that deserved a groan!

We had friends who had a duck and a dachsund dog. They would chase each other around the yard and seemed to be having a good-ol-time. We were never quite sure who was the boss, but we suspect it was the duck.

Thanks for the pictures. Hope you and "Yes Dear" continue to enjoy (especially Frosty and Bashful).

Happy traveling...
