I know this isn't about parrots, but my Indian Runners are essentially pets since the dogs don't care to herd them, and I'm so excited that they started laying this morning. They are one day shy of 19 weeks; I wasn't expecting eggs for another month! What fun!

Not to worry; strictly speaking this isn't a parrot newsgroup.

Congratulations.

Kewl! What the heck are Indian Runners??? :^)
Laurie - this is pet birds not parrots

Ducks. http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/Ducks/Runners/BRKRunners.html Regards

Thanks I was about to ask the same thing. Laurie's right it's pet birds, and we, at least those of us who are not way overly anal retentive, are always glad to hear about pretty much any pet.

Ducks.

and covers? ;^)

Have you tried a Belgian Tervuren?

Who would purposely allow dogs chase their pet birds! Get thee to rec.pets.dogs!

I have two border collies. One helps move the ducks around although he'd rather not. The other finds them too slow to bother with. They both turn on with sheep, but I think that having the ducks loose in the yard means they are pets (as the dogs are aware the parrots are, too) and so they leave them alone. I had hoped working ducks would slow the dynamo dog down, but I'm afraid it isn't to be. The ducks are now pets - and thank goodness they are giving eggs or the husband would be putting them in the same category as the parrots (useless).
I take it you have Tervurens, gizzie?
