We here at What the Ducks! love our waterfowl so much that we’d like to spread the Word of Bird throughout the universe, or at least, the northern hemisphere. To further that quixotic end, I recently published an article in an actual printed magazine (don’t worry, it’s on-line, too!) about the joys and more joys of duck ownership.*
So, for your reading pleasure—and to spare me having to put together an original blog entry today—see Backyard Poultry Magazine’s latest ish for my piece: “A Beginner’s Guide to Ducks in Suburbia”.
As they say in Hollywood, “comedy ensues!”**
*Maybe next time we should interview the ducks about the joys of human owners?
**And lots of handy tips, too. Don’t want to oversell that humor thang.

I like how your ducks come to the door, just like a cat or dog. It’s like they’re waiting to come inside. 🙂
They’re hilarious! And persistent… And they don’t like rain all that much (weird, huh?) so sometimes I’m sitting at my desk and hear this tap tap tapping. Yup, it’s the ducks doing their best Poe’s raven imitation. PS, if I actually open the door, they move away. I think they just want my attention, frankly. Thx for the comment!
I’d love to see such beauties looking in my window. 😉
It’s so relaxing to watch the ducks in the yard…maybe they enjoy watching us, too? Thx for stopping by the blog!
