Look what showed up yesterday


Four Muscovy ducks, two boys and two girls. The one with the black back is called Charlie Sheen because he is a total pig with the ladies. The rest will have names soon!

More and better pictures soon!

  2. Deb, they are spawn of Upper Canada Village ducks! Our friends Gary and Tammy overwintered the ducklings, and two are going back to UCV. The rest are now living with us. :) THey are about 10 months old now.

  3. Charlie must have Adonis DNA if he's so fond of the lady ducks!

    I'm glad to hear that you have ducks. We're all looking forward to stories of their hijinks, just as we love stories about the chickens.

  5. Muscovy ducks are great. Some moved in when Peter and I had riverfront property years ago. I'm looking forward to more pics of these additions to your menagerie.

  7. Hmmm a duck haiku and or poetry contest may get rude. What rhymes with "Duck"? And why am I suddenly getting alarmed for the ducks as I think of Bad Boy Beaker?

    Adonis had sex with cat
    That explains so much

  15. Okay, it is driving me nuts that I have been too busy to respond quickly to these hilarious comments!!!

    Katnip, indeed!

    Ahab, he is overly fond of the ladies. OVERLY! It's all sex, all the time in this barnyard. It is to blush.

    TTPT, absolutely! But first we must judge the hen haiku, which will be taking place at a drunken barbecue on July 16.

    Evlyn, everyone seems to like Muscovys. Or is that Muscovies?

    Andrew, there's a world of haiku rudeness out there, just waiting to be discovered!

    And good to see the roosters are still hammering away at the haikus. They make me laugh out loud!

    John, they're so... lusty!

    HWB, love it!
