Duck is a carousel animal
who spends her days watching flocks of real, flying ducks — and her
nights dreaming of soaring among them. Flying is all she can think
about, until the day a lost little duckling waddles into her life.
Soon Duck and Duckling are
inseparable: they walk together, play together, even dream of flying
together. Then the time comes when Duckling's yellow fuzz is
replaced by long white feathers, and Duck is determined to do
whatever it takes to help him learn to fly. But what if helping
Duckling find his wings means being left behind?

Tutter is currently
undergoing treatment for a bone infection in his left knee
joint. In addition to his antibiotic prescriptions (Baytril &
Clindamycin) he is also undergoing Adequan treatment in an
attempt to prevent lameness.
Adequan is an
intramuscular injection that Tutter receives once a week for 6-8
weeks. He showed a marked improvement even after his first
dose—moving his leg for the first time in weeks. Each shot costs
thirty-five dollars, so we are running a fundraiser to try to
get Tutter on his feet again.
If you make a
of $35.00 or more you will be listed under Tutter’s
Profile as one of his “Leg-Up Supporters”
for the duration of his stay here at Majestic.
Tutter is undergoing
hydrotherapy and as well as receiving bi-weekly x-rays to
closely monitor his progress.

We are often asked about hens
transforming into drakes, or drakes suddenly laying eggs. In all
of the instances we’ve encountered, a gender misidentification
occurred. Someone thought they had a boy and then an egg
suddenly appeared. All a case of mistaken identity.
The presence of a curly tail feather
is often the cause of gender misidentification. Curled tail
feathers are commonly associated with drakes, but on occasion, a
hen will sprout one. This tends to happen when there are no
drakes around for her to co-mingle with, only other hens. The
growth of the curled tail feather inspires owners to believe
that their hen has suddenly transformed into a drake.
Adding to the confusion, the hen will
often take on mock-drake behavior in these instances. Courting
and mounting behavior is commonly witnessed prior to and after
the growth of the distinct feather. Even though these traits may
emerge, the hen has not actually transformed into a drake.
This gender-bending tends to be
short-lived, and most hens will molt their curly tail feather in
the spring and revert back to their regular behavior again. The
behavior may end sooner if a drake is allowed to co-mingle with

We have never witnessed or encountered
a verified instance of a drake actually making a full
transformation into a hen or vice versa.
