White domestic duck
Known colloquially as "kwakkies"
Until I moved to the Free State, I'd never called these duck anything but white ducks. Here I heard them referred to as kwakkies pronounced kwukkeys. They're excellent snail police and as they don't eat your flowers or vegetables, they're most popular in any garden .
We chose a table next to the roaring fire ...
...although the whole restaurant was warm because of the sun streaming in through the windows
We're not used to the cold weather any more, but we're coping!
I felt I was being watched, and sure enough...
...Mr Rooster peering into the warm restaurant
Grant tempted him towards the window
His harem of three hens boasted chooks ...
...every bit as large as he
Later we watched the rooster begging tidbits from customers sitting outside in the sunshine
