Uh Oh! He has a Name...( Mr. Eyelashes)
I do not remember ever naming my ducks before, but this duck has been begging for a name and my recognition.He literally stalks me when I am outside. He leaves the flock of ducks to hang out near me. Tonight he pecked at the back of the chair I was sitting in, down by the pond. Then he just hung around, watching me. Ordinarily I would just assume this was because I am the one who hands out the food, but Mr. Eyelashes began hanging out around me, and closely , VERY CLOSELY, observing me before I began handing out little treats to my precious ducks.
SEE ?!? So I have named him Mr. Eyelashes, and now I will care more deeply for him than is good for me because my ducks have a way of becoming coyote and raccoon food in spite of our attempts to protect them. Mr. Eyelashes just better make sure he sticks to his pen in the frozen months when the coyotes and raccoons are desperately hungry,especially now that I care too much for him . He is gorgeous, isn't he?
Isn't he gorgeous?
