Yes... if they're your ducks you can fire up the bbq! Now that they're well fed, fat ducks (by the look of things), it's time for a good recipe.

I just googled some. Now I'm hungry! Drooling

(We had ducks when I was growing up - I'm allowed to say that they're destructive, stinking, noisy... and ...quite possibly my least favourite thing with feathers. Blackbirds are destructive too, but they don't poop on your doorstep and foul every bit of clean water they can find, and they sing nice to make up for scratching out seedlings. But ducks? Quack quack quack - only their mother could love it.)

Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Aha! Not really ducks then. Geese ;) Geese I can forgive.

(But they still taste good! Hilarious! )

I had ducks and geese for years, the ducks didn't bother the lilies, mostly we had inbred wild mallards, had some great mutants from them and they were well behaved. The geese were not allowed out without supervision, mostly because of not being able to fly to save themselves from the murdering dogs. The geese were not energetic enough to even go as far as the lilies so they didn't hurt any plants unless they sat on them. They did attack the trucks (valve caps) and chased the golf cart though.
