PostForum: Poultry   Posted: Wed Jun 15, 05 9:52 am   Subject: Ducks
Ducks are great. Khaki Campbells are what we have and they give us an egg each almost every day. Very comical, wonderful characters. But they can be right messy. Our's are on the same ground all the ...

A bit, depends on what you want to know... I've been using Linux since kernel version 0.9, and these days kernel hacking is my day job. I don't actually do much admin but know my way around and can pu ...

They have to be the right heat. Today's Hot Thai Special from the Wrestlers at lunchtime was really quite hot. Lets just say I'll expect to know when it when it's on it's way out...

I think what we're going to do at the weekend is to get some cheap paving slabs from B&Q and lay a path from the door to the pond/bath and the house so we can walk about in there safely. The rest can ...

Hi Bugs,

They're both fine, giving us two eggs a day.

The duck enclosure is still a puddled up swamp. So I'm contemplating putting down a few stepping stones to get round it without slipping over. That or raking some sand into the top inch or too of mud ...

I cant say much about work, other than 'hacking the kernel"....

Eating!
No seriously. Try them. I think duck eggs are soo much nicer than hens eggs. I like them boiled with a little salt. Since they are bigger you need to boil them a little longer than you would ...

IIRC katie thear says ducks dont need to be introduced to each other. Wait till dark and put them in the house with the others and all should be fine.... But that was with ducks that dont fly or put t ...

No way. If you really have to, make it opt-in for current users and any one registering gets the opportunity to opt-out before the first one goes to them.
