Looks like I guessed wrong about Cricket and ducks. I should have thought better of her, given how she feels about her chickens. It appears that maybe the duck hate gene skipped her after all. No wonder 4 of her kids are so gung-ho about ducks! This is her first time ever seeing ducks. At first, she jammed them all in a corner, singled one out and sniffed it from beak to toenail, slowly and carefully, then she released him, waited for them all to sort themselves out, and went right to work.
