100 Pictures of a Duck named Squeaky
I looked up duck illnesses and the website came up with a list of different ailments that could possibly affect waterfowl. I noticed Squeaky’s beak and feet were quite warm. I was concerned. I don’t think it is pneumonia. I think she is getting ready to lay eggs again, I least I hope so. She hadn’t laid an egg all summer.
Squeaky’s more than 4 years old, and I haven’t learned what her egg cycle is. I notice when she loses feathers that she will soon stop laying eggs and after her feathers grow back she may lay eggs again. But how long each cycle is has never been the same.
I should have kept a log or diary, which is what I had planned to do with this blog. However my blog is rather a poor excuse for trying to get likes for cute pictures of Squeaky.
