been very busy rebuilding the first pen of our
sanctuary. One of our wonderful and amazing supporters
who has become a dear friend of ours needs us to
duck-sit his six Mallards as he faces some medical
issues in January, so we've decided to turn this one pen
into a flight pen--as in, la pen that limits the flight
of the ducks inside, so they don't get into trouble
flying into neighboring pens. Our friend donated the
extra funds needed to transform this pen this way.
the ducks are doing well and everyone is very happy!
other news, Gloria and Lulu, the geese from Mystic
Village will be coming here soon as well for
goose-sitting. Gloria is actually a gander who we see
whenever we visit the village. He's 22 years old and has
arthritis and trouble getting around in his old age.
While there area is fenced in around their pond and the
good folks at Gray Goose Cookery (the goose is the
chef!) take really good care of them and feed them,
there is no winter housing. So... to prevent Gloria from
spending the winter outdoors, sitting in snow and mud,
he and Lulu will come here through April 1st and return
back to the village in the spring.
going to be short one pen for all of this, so I'm going
to have to move Marvin and Bee over to the Goose Run.
Bee loves exploring new places, so I'm sure it will be
fine. There's already a duck house in there for them.
