COMMUNITY UNITY --- PLEASE HELP!

During the past few years the growing duck population has become problematic for our community. As many of us are animal lovers, both wild & domestic, we would like to find humane and sensible ways to control it.

There are ways for everyone who lives here to help.

**DO NOT FEED THE DUCKS!  They are not following you because they are hungry.  This is a learned behavior that we humans have taught them.  There is plenty of natural food here for them to eat.  The bread, etc. that we feed them is actually unhealthy for them, swells up in their stomach & makes them sick.

**NEST CHECKS AND EGG REMOVAL - When nests are found during nesting season (now!) eggs can be removed so there will be no hatchlings born.  You must leave two eggs, which have been shaken so they won’t hatch, in the nest.  The duck will then sit on those two eggs instead of laying more eggs. 

**Thanks to the efforts of Danielle Ohanesian and David Champlin, who own a home in JP, this process has already begun.  They retrieved 40 eggs from 2 nests!  WOW! Danielle says, “they were very well behaved, lol,  and didn’t even get off the nest while I was removing them.”

Check behind shrubs, nooks and crannies for nests. If you have questions or don’t feel comfortable doing this yourself, give Danielle a call at 529-5531 & she will do it for you.
