Our duck with an attitude!
Well this summer, she got it in her head that the pond was the place to stay and that is what she did. She would not come down from the pond, but slept at the water's edge each night. We were none too pleased with this arrangement. When we would go up to chase her down for the night she would just give us the middle feather and slip into the pond. This started to change as the season moved into fall and there was a nip in the night air. The idea of nice meal morning and night was appealing. So slowly she would come down for short visits and get a snack. It did not take her long to remember the good life back in the coop. She goes out with every one else but when darkness comes she is right there to come back home!
