So newsettler had never tried turtle so I gave it to him, told him to use the garden hose method to clean it, basically you cut off the head and use a hose clamp to insert a hose and blow it up like a balloon

said it worked like a charm

tried releasing him again yesterday, they wanted nothing to do with him and started attacking him again, so back in the shop he goes.

my daughter did catch the other injured duck, his foot is messed up but looks like it is healing okay, so we put some blue kote on it and released him back to the rest, he wanted to take a selfie before we did though.

Hoping this helps integrating him back into the flock, I set him outside in his crate next to the feed

the babies are getting big, seem to be more comfortable around me at feeding time

Going to try and release baby huey today and see if they are fine with him

We have been slowly losing ducks, not sure if a predator is taking them or they are flying off. We have had three eagles hanging around the barn, baby Huey has disappeared. They seemed to have picked up a friend, a local turkey
