About six days ago my duck laid her first egg. I am so proud. I have also taught her to let me pick her up with no trouble without having handled her when she was young. She had a brother or sister I had got as well but it was the runt of the litter and died in the extremely hot weather one day. That was the day we decided to move it under better cover. We had named her Angus but when the other duck died we decided to rename her Lynchy after her brother. Then we started to think she wasn't a boy, she was a girl so she turned into Lynchina. Then DM said she was a Psycho Duck because she did poops every where so we renamed her Psycho Duck and that's how it will stay......For now.
Cyco has lived with the chickens for a while but at first she would jump the chook fence about 2metres high. Brave the paddock with the horse in. Then face the dog and go through the much smaller fence. She would end up on the back veranda. One time she was so sick of the chickens she flew up on the roof. She was too afraid to come down so in the end DD had to get the broom and push her down. She has gotten used to it now.

Kizzy, You have a very nice blog. I like hearingabout your duck. I hope more people come to see what you are doing.

Sounds like it took your duck a while to make friends with the chickens. Maybe your duck can't speak chicken. Seems like it would be kind of lonely to be a duck with nobody to talk to other than those silly chickens. Obviously, you have a smart escape artist duck. She already knows that she's smarter than those silly chickens.
Tell us more about your other animals.

What an interesting name for a duck! It seems to be quite the escape artist aswell.

Cyco is an interesting name! It took a few misses to find the right name. Does she respond to her new name? She looks pretty young but very smart if she's figured out how to escape. She's probably confused with all the clucking. Keep up your blogging, we'd love to hear all about your life and your animals. Hugs!
