A Birthday Duck


Nine ducks ( with cockerels Bogbrush & duster)

When I looked 
I had eight ducks this morning
When I returned after taking Chris out for his birthday lunch
I suddenly had nine
...and it's another f*cking hysterical runner duck that has arrived
Out of the blue without so much as a kiss-me-arse
Hey bleeding ho

  3. maybe you have super quick maters - they do it - lay the egg and hatch or they came under the eurostar past the border...

  4. Not sure whether to congratulate you or feel sorry for you?

  5. Well all I can say John is that if you will treat your animals as though they were family then every waif and stray in the area is going to gravitate towards your plot of land. Either that or some villager wants to get rid of a useless duck.

  6. The extra duck reminded me of this story:

    At least ducks are small!

    Happy Birthday to Chris.

  8. Man, I wish someone would dump a couple more ducks in our place, but with my luck, I would get drakes.

  13. Happy Birthday to Chris. And not to worry about the duck, it is in good hands (unless it decides to go 'turkey' and attacks you from behind)

  17. I'm sure Chris was thrilled.

  18. Are you sure Chris didn't sneak that one in?

    I have heard of cats and dogs and even a rabbit being dropped off.....but not fowl! Maybe it just found its way to you on its own....

  20. Just jumped the fence, eh? Your reputation preceeds you.

  21. You know you love them really... all nine of them. Jx

  22. Of coarse it's a drake.....why would anyone give you a duck that might actually contribute eggs?

    ReplyDelete

  25. Sorry. 'Tis your fate to attract every critter in need within a ten mile radius. They know if they come to you, they have a home. (And isn't that a lovely reputation?)

  26. Another fowl posting by your good self. Now what the duck are you talking about?

    ReplyDelete
  27. What are you going to name the foundling?

  28. You must be ducking kidding me! Spontaneous generation! It's a birthday miracle! ;)

  30. Spread rumours that you're raising Aberdeen Angus; you never know, someone might just leave you one and you'd be eating steak for years.

  31. I got it completely wrong, no surprise there. I thought you were going to say you were one less, due to the fact that you not only took Chris out to lunch, but the duck as well.

    LLX

  32. I am in the uk for 3 days so I shall have a celebratory scotch egg in your honour to mark the arrival of the new duck!!

    ReplyDelete

    PS: Hope Chris had a good birthday--I've missed your blog this week, as we are out of town ... with the Scottie of course
