My Chickens vs. The Ducks (yes, oregon ducks)

The boys and I went to feed the ducks the other day. I stopped my the bread store on the way to grab a loaf. The gal at the store tried to sell me a sack of 16 loaves for $2.00, dried bread for ducks. I thought, what am I going to do with all that bread? So I bought one loaf for .69. Reasonable, right? I was wrong! The ducks quickly tore entire slices of bread from our hands, I had to make a pathway, scoop up the boys and put them on a picnic table to save them from little beaks. The ducks stayed down, and got bite to eat...and we ran out of bread. Part of the pond was frozen over, and that's where the Canadian geese stayed. I think we'll go back next week!
