Guy, I can trade him off so I can keep the duck in good shape, but to reinforce some training lessons, I'm letting him eat some ducks as a reward. They really enjoy a crop of warm, bloody duck meat instead of cold quail.
Fallen Feathers, we're always looking for places to fly. If you're within two hours of DFW and it looks like you are since your location says Texoma, we could bring some birds up if you have good places to fly. Stock tanks in the middle of open fields or pastures are the best. Even one duck on a pond is flyable. Ponds need to be less than an acre, but they can be a bit bigger under the right circumstances. Basically, we need a pond with ducks and relatively open ground for a couple hundred yards. Let me know.
