Ah-hamed Ibn Fahalan Ibn Alabas Ibn Rasheed Ibn Hamad or "Eeben"
was attacked by a hawk after being part of a school hatching project. We feel
that any duck who's survived compounding misfortunes like these deserves a super-secret warrior name, which
is why we derived his name from Michael Crichton's: "The 13th Warrior," which is based upon the story of Beowulf.
"Ibn" means: "Son of" and in the movie, Antonio Banderas' character's long name is actually his detailed
lineage, which we feel every duck should have--especially if he's a homeless one.
Fortunately a concerned family stepped in and took over with
Eeben's care and gave him everything a little duck could want. Sadly, this wonderful
family didn't have the kind of set-up that an adult duck needs to thrive, so
they brought him to us.
Eeben is a very human-imprinted, super friendly Pekin duck
who is currently enjoying our Majestic accommodations with his new girlfriend Deeta!
