duck great escape

The ducks escaped from their pen this morning.
Three times.
Before 7 a.m.

In frustration, Hannah and I scoured the perimeter searching for the weak spot and couldn’t find one. Hannah said they must be flying over the fence which is all of 3′ tall. I had a hard time picturing this since these little Pekins are built like a 757’s without an engine. They are heavy!

This afternoon we set up the camera and let the film roll. Twenty minutes in we caught them in the act. They’re not going over, but under. We now know where to build up our defenses.

Next, I had to chase them down and get them back into the pen. Here’s a quick highlight of their great escape for the green weeds on the other side.
