How Old?

Friday, May 25, 2012


The post you've all been waiting for! ( all my four followers, that is)... My beloved drake is reaching sexual maturity and has turned into a punk rampant! It happened literally within an hour's time. I took him outside for some sun time a few days ago to watch the birds and chase the bees. Ironically enough, he became....Twitterpated. 0_0 The boy never stops quacking... Ever. He goes on all day and all night. I thought sleeping on the sofa was reserved for argumentative husbands. My duck, however, has proved me wrong. Who knew a 7 pound creature could Kick me out of my king sized bed night after night? My earplugs just aren't cutting it anymore. How many times have we all heard that drakes are quiet? DON'T LISTEN TO THEM! Donegan has had his practice and is now capable of splitting ears... Make no mistake. Every time he sees me, he goes wild and forms a ginormous ducky mohawk in hopes of impressing me with his masculinity. Seeing that i consider myself to be his mom, this behavior is slightly awkward and leaves me feeling dirty. When my five year old is up and running, Donegan is up and running after him. He must find my sons size a more realistic match in comparison to my husband. Very protective, is he! More of a goose in nature. But at least i know that when my husband deploys again, i will be safe from intruders. Pfffft! As much as i would like to tell you all hes still cuddly and full of sunshine, its important to be real with you. I did my research on drakes, and have been awaiting this awnry behavior. It came as no surprise... And my house schedule is fully set up to accommodate it. Its nothing i cant deal with... But in most circumstances, i would recommend you get a girl.


  1. so, I really appreciate this opinion of the drake's attitude once he is full grown/mature. I was a little worried about "big boy" hormones, and that was keeping me from deciding about whether to keep a male WH or not. (I have a trio, and two buffs all about a wk and a half old) It's nice to see some one's honest opinion about the change in personality. thanks, and I love your blog. I just now followed it officially but I've been a lurker. lol! (found it through BYC)


I'd love to hear from you!
