Cracker earned his keep first thing today...when I let him out to do his business he IMMEDIATELY cornered that pesky new female Muscovy duck who's been coming and going......they wreak HAVOC to a garden in minutes so this was NOT good. I caught her easily with his help, grabbed the scissors and trimmed her wings, and put her back in the south bed. Now I've noticed a female on a nest in the central duck pen! One reason I want to find a home for all these feral cats is they've killed 17 ducklings here the last year! I have way too many males, so time to man up again and slaughter and cook and freeze 2-3 more. Life on an urban farm is always interesting!
