It took three days for a flock of duckbill ducks to return to their owner’s home.
The first was on Friday night.
The second came on Saturday morning.
Then the third was on Sunday morning.
“That was pretty amazing,” said Robert Fennelly, a retired construction worker who lived next door to the barn where the ducks were being kept.
“We thought, ‘This is great, it was all ducks for a couple of weeks.
That’s when Fennella and his wife realized the problem. “
But then, Monday morning, the ducks began to return.
“They were not in the barn. “
It was almost like they had gone to heaven,” Fennell said.
“They were not in the barn.
They were back on the porch.”
Fennell’s wife and her husband were not alone in their surprise at the first sign of duckbills again.
The Fennells said their neighbors who had recently purchased a duckbilling operation were not pleased with the ducks’ return.
The Fannells said they thought the ducks had gone back to the farm for the first time since their owners left. “
The ducks had a lot of respect for me, and I was trying to show them that they could be my friend.”
The Fannells said they thought the ducks had gone back to the farm for the first time since their owners left.
But after a few hours of being locked out of the barn, the Fennens decided to call their neighbors.
“At first, it wasn’t the most pleasant thing to hear,” Finnell said of the neighbors’ reaction.
“Then they got excited, and we got a little bit emotional.”
Fennel said he’s had goose bumps since.
And now, here we are, a couple weeks later, and the ducks are still here.”
