I had similar problems catching three of my ducks as well. In early December I had eight people, two canoes, and a labrador retriever breaking the ice all afternoon to try and catch them to no avail. One of the men shot one with a pellet gun 6 times to try and bring it down but needed the dog to finally dispatch it. We thought that if we killed the male, the two females would be easier to get. Turned out he shot a female and the others escaped. Finally they came home to feed in a thaw and after they came home the lake froze solid except for a small hole just off my beach. I just walked down after dark and scooped them up in my arms. Now they are in with the chickens laying eggs for my daughters and my breakfast.

Richard offered:

Hey cousins, take heart, I have a part to add to your story for a happy ending for your ducks and mine. I have two extra males (drakes) that I have been trying to give away. Three males are too rough on the 6 females, which are being raped to death. Please tell me you want them--I'd hate to have to kill them. I will be in Lac Megantic sometime next week and we could meet there for the transfer.

Rodrigue answered:

Rod & Yolande: -25F last night again. Today I brought in the ducks--not enough heat out there for them. They have been in my tub having a ball all day and have gone through 4 changes of water. I gave them a rubber person-doll to play with.


Check Your Yellow Jacket

Why do we laugh when we see someone get hurt? I grin just at the thought of it. Are we sadist or masochist?

I can still picture dad hooting and hollering while slapping his bottom-half furiously. Excuse me while I take a breather and crack up!

Ok. I've regained my composure--ha, ha, ha!

He must've danced the most agitated jig I have ever seen. Finally, after the longest laugh I have ever experienced without being able to take a breath, he dropped his pants and a whole nest of Yellow Jackets buzzed angrily away--content to know that he would never step on their nest again.
