A lot of people have asked whether or not our ducks can fly and whether or not they try to migrate for the winder when the other, wild ducks come through town.
Fortunately for those of you who enjoy duck eggs, no. These ducks don't fly or migrate. They do, however, really enjoy running all over the farm in the spring, summer and fall and swim the irrigation ditches. They also hunt for crickets when we irrigate the fields. All in all, they seem more than happy to just wander and forage and look at the wild mallards as if they were aliens, or pigeons.
