Four hen ducks and a drake completed the Forest Garden today. I haven’t named them yet. I don’t think they like me very much just yet. The drake is a pure bred Khaki Campbell while the hen ducks are about 90% Khaki Campbell with strains of Welsh Harlequin. They are rather quacky when alarmed but you won’t know they are there when they are just chilling maxing relaxing.
They are now confined to their home space until they get used to me before I let them free range completely. And Caesar needs to get to know them too, and not bother them. He doesn’t go near his toy duck, so I think his training is half way complete.
The ducks are already nibbling away at the stuff around them instead of the pellets, that’s a good sign they still know how to forage.
