The Community Grows

Well Bernie the Duck may be in love with Petra (or at least in lust), but there’s no love lost between him and our two newest duck family members: Teresa and Avila, who arrived this afternoon, all yellow ducklette fuzz and brash mini-quacks. They are about four weeks old.

They can probably hold their own … but “probably” isn’t enough for me. Once I saw how aggressive Bernie was being to them, I just couldn’t risk waking up tomorrow morning to fuzz-less ducklings, or, worse yet, dead ones. Back into Smooch’s cat carrier they went, and up to the second floor just outside my room. It may smell like a barn up here, but I think I’ll put up with it until I know they can hold their own against a testosterone-saturated nine-pound bully.
