Breaking Curfew

Since I’m off work tomorrow I don’t have to get up at 3AM. Therefore I can stay up late. This means it’s my turn to tuck the flock into bed for the night.

Last night I had three curfew breakers. Tonight I have five. Sigh. I read that they would probably do this, rather like guineas. Can I do anything about it?

Don’t think so. If I clip their wings there’s still no guarantee they will go in the coop. Then they’d be sitting ducks on the ground. I think as the weather gets colder they will return to the coop at night.

There will be fewer of them anyway. Some are going to freezer camp. I can’t afford to feed this many ducks all winter. Muscovys are gluttons.
