Sad day at the Salsa house today. Yesterday afternoon, in broad daylight, a raccoon bent the chicken wire, climbed into the duck pen, and killed Midnight and Golden.
We locked our ducks up tight each night, but never thought we had to worry about raccoons during the day. We are all just stunned and so sad that our sweet, funny little ducklings are gone. Those ducklings sure made us smile with their cute personalities and captured our hearts in such a short time. Midnight and Golden, we’ll miss your funny little peep quacking, the way you liked to follow the girls around whenever they were outside, and how you’d come onto the porch every afternoon and peck the glass when you had decided it was lettuce time.
Rest in peace Midnight and Golden.
