    The Russian Duck Whisperer

    I thought this was too cute not to share. My husband sent this to me.

    My mother in law used to keep a flock of chickens every summer, and every suppertime it was a task and a half to round them all up to go in the barn for safety at night. She would have loved to be able to do this.

    Yes, I used to do this with cows at milking time but never tried it on ducks - they automatically went inside by the time I got there to lock up. Lovely to see the fast action.

    I'll bet his kids toe the line LOL - My brother has recently started raising turkey's along with about a hundred chickens. They had visitors Sunday and their 4yo let all the birds loose -' Toby said they wanted to come out and play with me' Well the chickens were easy to coral all he has to do is start the lawn mower. But catching 13 turkeys took 6 adults an hour to capture. It was more fun than I wanted to have on a 96 degree day.

    These videos are great. Wish I could have done a video when our kids were little & we had chickens & cats as not to many people believed us when we told them that when we wanted to call the chickens in (as we let them out during the day) we just went out & started saying kitty, kitty & they all came running. Then when we would say chick, chick the cats would come running. I know it sounds crazy & it really was a crazy thing, but this is very true. Friends we had at that time witnessed this & they could hardly believe it.

    Great videos thanks for sharing .. Loved the ducks and then the "attentive" audience that the farmer has ..

    I don't know why it was listed as a bare chested man? He had on a black shirt with a long white vest over it. I know, knit picking. LOL
