My Chickens are Ducks

I had no idea, none whatsoever.   My chickens are ducks.  I'm waiting for them to unzip the chicken suit and pull out their little webbed feet.  Really, these new little Buffs even sound like a duck.  There's no cheep, cheep, no bwak, bwak.  It's somewhere between a quack and a honk.  They're ducks I tell you!

I'll prove it.

See the sprinkler?  It's been over 100 for the past several days so the hubby decided to cool off the chicks by giving them a little shower.  Sure, they are birds and birds like baths- hence the birdbath.  But these guys danced around it in, soaking their wings and then laid in the puddles.  And quacked.  

They are ducks for sure.

As long as your sheep don't turn out to be goats Kathy!

LOL- Yep, I'll bet there's a lot of that going around (although I won't get political, I'll leave that to Tom)

I wonder why goats get such a bad rap in the Bible? There must be a good reason historically.

Don't you hate when that happens.

Your chickens must have been hanging around Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts too long. If an unconstitutional mandate can be made into a constitutional tax out of thin air, then your chickens should have no problem becoming ducks!

Funny how a silly chicken post can turn so political and religious! Both parties are bad. It needs a good overhaul and put a real people in power. Perhaps a small businessman, a small farmer, etc. Someone who knows what the common people face and is concerned about our health and the common good, not just corporate greed at any cost or the big bad danger of drinking milk straight from a cow. I wonder how people got by for all those thousands of years without big dairy? And here I said I wouldn't get political.

Amen, Kathy. I agree with your comments.

As for your chickens, I think they love having their own personal spa. ;o)

Have a blessed evening!

Okay, my Buffs do the SAME THING!! I keep calling them geese because of their "honking!" I wonder if it a peculiarity with the breed?
