Bonnie arrived today. Her owner
bought two Cayuga ducklings and did not protect them
properly. Her sibling, Clyde, was killed by a
predator (probably a raccoon).
Bonnie is unsure what to do in
the bathtub... I've never seen a duckling who did
not know to swim right off. She's not eating dry
food out of her bowl; we have to float it in water.
The owner admitted she did not do proper research
about how to care for them, but most disturbing was
the fact that she just dropped her off, wrote a
check and didn't care to see the facilities or
anything. She just wanted to solve her problem and
go. Very disheartening...
This little girl is very
lonely, so I gave her a mirror. Once her fecal comes
back negative, I will introduce her to the others.
Isabel thinks she will fall in love with our Young
Jeffrey when she sees him.
