I totally fucking agree

Anyone else keep ducks?
Pic related: Welsh Harlequins.

A couple of months ago, I bought three Khaki Campbells. They were moulting at the time, and so have only just started laying again recently.
The farm-QT I bought them off gave me thorough warning that these girls love to shit on flat, hard surfaces. Well, she wasn't wrong and I still don't know why.
There are many more mysteries I hope to have elucidated in this thread.

Discussion of all fowl shall be permitted.

Actually yeah. Was super suprised. Only happened once. Didnt notice if the egg was a diff size tho.

Couple of my females will perform mating-like behaviour: getting on the other's back in the water, pulling the feathers on head, etc.
I'm 99% sure they're female: they all quack, and they just finished moulting and bear no colourful plumage.
Is this normal?

Is shitting on specific terrain something ducks normally do?

I’d be a seagull, so I could fly, live at the beach, eat human food, and generally have a nice life.

From what I know secretaries are part of a different lineage for modern birds of prey than the actual living members of the only surviving family of cariamiformes, like Seriemas and such, which are also birds of prey and also have simular killing methods like their proposely closely related terror birds, but since seriemas also are cited as birds of prey and show relation to diurnal birds of prey that are also not part of the order in which secretaries are more related to, they still have their own unique family, but it's not to argue to they are not related to them at all

Was like 6 or 7yo (kindergarten or preschool, whatever age that is) and kinda upset that there wasn't really anything to be afraid of / unimpressed with tiny animals of so my dad got me those Dinosaur! magazines and I ate that shit up. Like autistic style. I'd correct museum guides on field trips and teachers in class. I've probably forgot more than most people ever knew.

Same with me, I had an encyclopedia with like 1000 different species and I could identify most of them just by how they looked at age like fucking 8, I can't even tell the difference between a fucking gigantosaurus and a t-rex now

They keep moving around a lot and there are lots of blind spots even with the three cameras but they are still there, I wish they did like the decorah eagles with a single stream and the cam operator switching between them.

Nah, the toilet moths aren't cutworm, they're much smaller. I meant drain flies.

Just stop cleaning certain corners, eventually some spiders will accumulate. Obviously the more of them the more effective. They don't really bother me and I just leave their webs alone. Sometimes if they spread too far I'll just clean it off.
