Missing Duck Mystery - Solved!

Ever since we got that new drake the ducks have been in a dither. We had to shuffle everyone around to put all of the duck hens in with the new dandy.

 I didn't see anything but hay. Hey! What's that?

All except two. My funny little garage duck doesn't get along with the other ladies so she stayed put. And we couldn't catch one of the little runner ducks so she stayed in the garage also.

But we haven't seen the little runner hen for the last couple of days. This usually means bad news. As in curtains. As in "get the gloves and bring a bag." Woefully I checked around but I couldn't find her remaining remains...or any other sign of her.

So I brought in the big guns. The Big Man is really good at finding the bodies. He was in the garage for about a minute and came out laughing.  He found her. She was up on the stack of hay bales on a beautiful nest. A nest! At this time of year!

Who knows if the eggs are good but at least we know where she is now. Silly girl. 

Happy Tuesday everyone! Anyone else have a duck who doesn't know when to set a nest?
