Christmas is coming, the duck? is getting fat

Posted by Gabrielle

I'm sure you've heard of the children's Christmas song: Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, please to put a penny in the old man's hat. Well, this morning as we were setting out for a brisk walk around our circle we espied a funny sight:

Our neighbors two houses down keep ducks in their backyard. On the house right next to us we saw three of their ducks perched on the roof eating out of the gutter. They hardly seemed to mind us when we stopped to take pictures. We were surprised that, not being wild ducks, they were still able to fly that high.
Christmas is coming and the ducks are getting fat! I wonder if they are being fattened for Christmas dinner! Yummmm!!!!
