The barn now has three ducklings - assume about six weeks old - Mallards - courtesy of the blasted feed store that sells them - and obviously someone bought them. Not me. I tried to ignore them - that lasted about two days. They are in a safe enclosure being fed baby food - of course always making a mess with their little water dish.
So now Aunt Grayarabs cannot help it - have supplied them with various water containers - feed them - and now they see me and start the little duck chattering. I understand they need greens? Last night I took out some finely chopped romaine lettuce and put it in their water - much duckling glee. What else can I supply from the house? Spinach?
Oh - could they safely eat alfalfa leaves?
