When I saw the ad, I thought "what on earth would we do with him?", but given the massive fly problem we have been having I thought "why not?".
And so Charlie arrived.
Charlie is an Indian Runner duck, and what makes him facinating and albeit comical is that he stands straight and tall like a bowling pin. At the present time, he is hanging out in a dog kennel down by the barns, and being spoilt with every treat imaginable.
The trouble is, we think he's lonely.... and so we have some Indian Runner ducklings arriving this weekend. Fingers crossed that one of them turns out to be a Mrs. Charlie!
