Pekins off to butcher!

Well, I got up at the crack of dawn and delivered the pekins to the processor before work. Yesterday, we drove out and picked up two dog crates from the processor. We loaded the 9 ducks up last night, and they were delivered to the dock at 6 this morning. 5 in one crate, 4 in the other. I'm relieved to have them gone. They are incredibly messy creatures. Upside, though, was that they didn't seem to eat nearly as much as the Cornish X, and seemed to grow out faster. We'll see what the weights are like when I get them home this evening (same day pickup! Woohoo!)
