True Story

We thought everyone would like this true story below! We do hope the NIBA or IRBC records committee are not useing Mr Rouyer as a duck "expert" on any contentious records! There is also no confirmation that the photographed duck came from Mr Rouyers own "flock"

A French farmer has been given a one-month suspended jail sentence and fined 500 euros (£428) for feeding his ducks marijuana to rid them of worms.
Police arrested Michel Rouyer after they discovered 12 cannabis plants and about 5kg (11lb) of the drug during a visit to his home after a theft.
Mr Rouyer said there was "no better worming substance" for ducks and that his flock was in excellent health.
A police spokesman said it was the first time they had heard such a claim.
Mr Rouyer, who lives in the village of Gripperie-Saint-Symphorien on France's Atlantic coast, did also admit to smoking some of the marijuana.
