Thankyou for your kind words. We have all been there many times and will be there in the future making awful, sympathic decisions for our animals. As you say humans don't get that chance unless we go to Switzerland!!
An update on the green eggs (we have now decided that they are more green than blue) we have now got three. The eggs are the same size and colour as a mallard's. But we havn't seen any just lately, so we have put the eggs back into the duck house and are going to monitor what happens. Will let you know.
Many thanks to muraty for the message, Blue Swedish ducks sound beautiful, will have to look them up on google.
PS: As of today's I have no new problems, William's seems perfect with his sisters and the duck with the prolapsed womb - well its not popped back out since I popped it back in. So no news is good news, her sister the one with the lump on the foot remains the same and we continue to monitor her.
Best Wishes, Janet
