Duck Chronicles – Episode 14 – Little Ducks in Fields of Green
Today on Season Three – Episode Fourteen – Little Ducks in Fields of Green – we start out with the babies giving them first crack at the newly filled pools before the “big kids” come take over.
Then we let the adults out and Charlie finally draws a bead on the “bad bird” we always have him looking for. You will see the bird dog come out in him as he instinctively goes into a point, even though the bad bird (a Blue Heron) is about 35 yards away and about 50 feet up.
Charlie has done a great job of chasing off both hawks and herons. We are constantly keeping him on the look out, today it just worked out that one actually showed up.
Do you have a total count of how many ducks you are running now? I am thinking about getting a dozer to clean my ponds and then getting some ducks. 🙂
Just started watching so pardon my ignorance, but is there a duck that is ‘alpha’ or what?
No not really, some ducks are more dominant than others but there is no stick pecking order like say with chickens.
Had duck for dinner last Sunday, nicer than chicken.
Do different breeds of duck taste different? Do their eggs taste different?
How long to raise a goose from chick to dinner table.
Great video clip, look forward to more?
