One of the boy ducks has gone.
I suppose in my heart of hearts I knew it was only a matter of time. They have taken to wandering all over the place, out of our farm, down the road, over to the neighbours, you name it they go. For a while we tried shutting the farm gate, but it made no difference as they went into the stream and swam out that way!
So I was kind of resigned to the fact that one day one or all weren't going to be there for breakfast in the morning. He's been gone for 3 days now. I think he's definitely not coming home.
