LeeLoo

Duck

Rouen

Female

Hatched 6/1/13

Majestic Resident

  

    

LeeLoo came to us from another shelter on August 2, 2013 along with her friend Waverly (who sadly passed away afterwards of cancer). They were the result of an irresponsible hatching project. LeeLoo is one of our new sanctuary hens and will be responsible for teaching all of our new rescues the ropes.

LeeLoo makes lots of little happy ducky noises! Her little mutterings reminded us of the character from the movie "The 5th Element" and earned her the name LeeLoo.

Majestic Resident

  

    

Teaspoon came from a location experiencing some overcrowding. She arrived at Majestic in August of 2013 with mild cataracts. She will likely lose all of her vision over the course of the next year or so.

Teaspoon is named in memory of adopted duck Smidge and in honor of her family who opened their home and hearts to her.

Teaspoon... "More than a Smidge, but less than a handful."

Our little Miracle was rescued from a pond where she had been abandoned despite her visual impairment (or perhaps because of it). Once we heard she was out in the wild all alone, calling for other ducks, we couldn't wait for her to arrive at our sanctuary!

Although completely blind, Miracle adapted to her new situation here and mastered her pen area in about six weeks. She is currently doing extremely well and is very friendly!

Majestic Resident

 

 

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 girlfriend Deeta!

Deeta had to be retired to our sanctuary due to leg issues that require certain pen conditions which we can absolutely ensure.

Airline Ellie was only 4 weeks old when she was found walking on the Airline Trail. She ran up to a family of bicyclists and asked them for help. Apparently, she asked the right people because they brought her home and took care of her until they found our sanctuary.

Although she arrived with some leg troubles caused by malnutrition, we able to correct them completely by immediately upgrading her diet. Today she is running around wherever she pleases without any difficulty at all.

Airline Ellie was human-imprinted and very friendly. While she was originally up for adoption, we have since paired her up with Eeben (who is retired here), which means she is retired too!

Dolly

Duck

Khaki Campbell

Female

Est. Hatch: Spring 2008

Majestic Resident

 

 

Dolly was found abandoned on a pond. When she first arrived she was emaciated and her feathers had lost their waterproof effectiveness. Within a few weeks of joining our flock of rescues, Dolly blossomed into her true beautiful self. She is a little shy, but comes up pretty close for her treats. 

Dolly is a special needs duck with weak legs that sprain easily, so she can't be penned with other boys or bossy ducks. She occasionally needs to spend a week in the barn, in her own space to recover quietly. Since we have not been able to find a home who can handle her special needs, we decided to retire her here at our sanctuary.

Hatched late June 2007

Majestic Resident

Aladdin "Laddy" was rescued on 8/18/07. They were dropped off at a park in Middletown, CT when he still had his duckling peep, which enabled us to successfully determine his age. 

WeeBit was removed from an overcrowded situation where she had to compete for everything. She's a wee-bit shy, but when picked up she gives a lovely, fluffy snuggle.

April 2018 Update:

Laddy is an eleven year-old drake who beat all the odds and survived, but he is really showing his age these days. He requires very special care and is no longer available for adoption. WeeBit is keeping very close company with him.

Hatched 2004

Majestic Resident

Winston was a human imprinted duck who was adopted from us many years ago along with his best friend Mr. Pearl who has since passed away of old age. His adoptive family could no longer take care of this old man the way they once could, so they contacted us and took advantage of our adoption guaranty (which we encourage!).

Now 13 years old, Winston has an arthretic foot and needs plenty of hydrotherapy time on the pond to keep active. He will be enjoying a Majestic retirement here at our sanctuary for as long as he needs.
