Finding Nemo

Winter storm Nemo is just starting to arrive.  The ducks don’t seem to mind.

Like Snow off a Duck’s Back

Well, one of them might mind a little bit…

  1. Fantastic images.. absolutely awesome.. I hope the storm is not too terrible! c


  2. I hope all the residents at the Flying T are warm and safe.

    A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, “I’m sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away.”
    The distressed woman wailed, “Are you sure?”
    “Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead,” replied the Vet….
    “How can you be so sure?” she protested. “I mean you haven’t done any testing on him or anything.
    He might just be in a coma or something.” The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room.

    He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on
    In amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his Front paws on the examination table and sniffed the
    Duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the Vet with sad eyes and shook his head.
    The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room.

    A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.
    The vet looked at the woman and said, “I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably,
    A dead duck.”

    The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys & produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..
    The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. “$150!” she cried, “$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!”
    The vet shrugged, “I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the
    Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it’s now $150.”


  3. Beautiful ducks. What kind are they? I hope they didn’t get buried in the snow.


    • They are Muscovy ducks – raised for food, though these are are two of our hens and one of our drakes (the one with his bill open) from our breeding flock. They obviously come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. You can read more about them if you click on the “Ducks” tab at the top. We really enjoy them – quiet, smart, free-ranging, prolific breeders, and wonderful mothers.


Please feel free to comment or respond - we may take a bit to get back to you (between feeding animals, mucking stalls, mending fences, and chasing the goats out of the chicken coop again!)
