Wade has graduated from my screened porch to the back yard. He has the coop for shelter and shade and the dog fencing for running around in the sunshine (or rain) plus a big “pool” to splash around in.
Meanwhile children and adults young and old flock to my yard to pet my sweet duckling.
I’ve given up trying to tame him. He’s a wild animal and he’s having none of it. I think chasing him and holding him is doing more harm than good, so I just admire him from afar. It will be about six more weeks until I can determine if he’s a boy or a girl. Meanwhile I’ll just call him “he” until I know. Come by anytime to visit. I’m having more fun than a crazy lady should be allowed.
