Warden Daisy

Daisy the Duck guards the front porch when he’s not terrorizing the chickens or mudding up his pool. He thinks he’s a lot bigger and badder than he really is.  I mean, his name is Daisy for goodness sake. But…his bite does bruise. He lowers his head and waddles with all his might to hunt you down for a taste.
I do not recommend a “pet” duck.


Matilda and the Quackers

We are not sure what to make of the ducks that brazenly stalk us at the screen door every morning. What isn’t shown here is the size of her tail. It is puffed up twice as big as it’s normal size and I can’t help but smile as she so earnestly protects her  lady that feeds her.


from Record Lows to Record Highs

We’ve gone from record low to record high temps in the past two weeks of our springtime. It is so hot today, I went out to mist the ducks and chickens (and myself) with the water hose. Feels like my days in Georgia.


 

He quacks me up!

Sorry for the title. I could think of a lot worse puns but I settled on that one. Just put it on my bill if you don’t like it.
My neighbors have pet ducks. Not to mention goats, chickens and roosters. I went over to check on the animals while they were out of town and this guy followed me around the whole time.

I laughed while he waddled after me but I didn’t let him get too close. I wasn’t  sure of his intentions so I kept my distance. Of course I grabbed a couple portraits before I left.
