The gardener keeps the ducks for eggs, so he wanted them corralled. One of his damned ducks took up residence in our swimming pool for awhile. Messy. Confrontational. Ducks, in general, are very rude. They are not my ducks. I would have been happy to see them swim off into the distance. I'm not entirely in control of what goes on here at my property: the gardener is an animal lover. There are times I expect to see giraffes in the back yard. We've had: pigs, ducks, chickens, horses, and rabbits. It's like a zoo. Since the gardener has been here for over 25 years and lives on the premises, well ..... you get the picture.
However, he has a very proprietary attitude towards the property. Sometimes even I am locked out.
As to the kind of ducks they are... well, the do quack, and they are big ducks, black and white. And sometimes they make me see red.
