Wow, that's good. Yep mine used to climb my playground ladder and just poop all over the playground.At first we tried to let the kids run free in the backyard, kid proofing as needed. That doesn't work as I could kid proof all day, every day and never get done. Now they have their own large pen with a kid playground.
Now that the weather is cooler the birds are doing a lot better. I've been finding fresh duck eggs just laid on the ground. I've no idea what kind-muscovy-mallard-call duck. It's out of season for mallard, but I know my mallard hens are not pure mallard.
These little guys hatched yesterday-it's spring!

After that it kind of just turned into theirs, haha!
Oh yes, it's cooling down here also and getting so much better for my animals and birds, now I don't have to feel so bad for them anymore. I would have a hard time finding duck eggs scattered around the yard, might just depend on how many acres you have though. I assume your duck eggs are for hatching?
The chicks looks amazing, happy and healthy! Glad they all are doing good. Did all chicken eggs make it, Or did some not hatch?
