About six years ago a wild mallard duck flew into our pond. We had two other ducks at the time. With a nice place to sleep and all the food he could eat; of course he decided to stay. So we added a new member to our family. At first he was scared of us, but as time passed he grew out of that. Every now and then if your not watching, he will sneak into the house to eat some dog food. Well, after a few years the other ducks passed away and Lenny grew lonely. Lenny needed some company, we had to stop him from visiting the neighbors chickens so we got the gang.
The gang consists of six ducks that we got to keep Lenny happy. When a duckling is young, you cannot tell if they are males or females. The baby ducks invaded the bathtub and became part of our family. The baby ducks outgrew the bathtub and graduated to a cage outside. Once they started to develop feathers, we took them to the pond and could never get them out. When the feathers grew in we were lucky, we ended up with two males and four females. So in addition to Lenny we now have Dexter, Lilly, Don, Heidi, Delilah, and Georgette.
Lenny has passed on but has left his mark on all of us, he will be sadly missed.
