Another duck and 2 chickens

G returned last night with x1 wild duck (Paradise shelduck) from a neighbouring acreage and also x2 of our hens. One of the hens had been repeatedly flying the coop and scratching up areas we didn't want scratched up so it had to go. We have tried clipping chickens flight feathers in the past but the Indian Game birds (this one was a cross between IG and Araucana) are pretty flighty and adept at manoeuvring even once this has been done. In any case we have an excess of birds and a strong desire for more roast chicken!
