Did you know that ducks are great complainers? Dilly is broody and unfortunately she’s made her nest by the pond and not in the duck house. She religiously sits on her eggs during the day. Come evening she’s not happy about being coaxed indoors. We were hesitant to take her eggs away. We knew nothing would come of her efforts, but she’d decide when it was time to give it up. This morning when Dilly returned to her nest, every egg was gone. Poor Dilly. She just wants to be a momma.
This short video clip shows just how annoyed Dilly has been with Paul. You can just imagine what she might be saying to him!
