Ganders with Jobs

So since we let our pair of incubated muscovies out to free range, Pierre the gander has decided very clearly that they are actually his babies. This is fine and actually all very helpful as he basically protects them from the chickens, Lucy and any other potential aerial predators (pterodactyls, bald eagle etc). They take it in turns to follow each other around and all look to be very happy with the arrangement. Who knows what identity issues the ducklings may have in the future, but for the meantime they are growing well and starting to get some of their adult feathers.
