Caroline is one of the farmingfriends forum members and she has three khaki campbell ducks which she bought at the rare breed market at Skipton the other weekend.
Caroline doesn’t know the age of the ducks but she thinks that they are not older than 2 years.
She says, “I must admit that they certainly have different characters with one of them definitely in charge. She dips her head and ushers the other two towards any new event, water in the bucket, food arriving and me. Her demeanour reminds me of a villain from a 60s Bond movie so she is to be known as Rosa Klebb.”
Caroline has sent some photos of Rosa Klebb and the others.
Members of the forum have been discussing Rosa’s behaviour and wondering if she is indeed a drake or whether she has mixed with drakes before and so is mimicking their behaviour.
