10 Reasons to Adopt a Majestic Duck or Goose
do our best to make your adoption worry free…
1. Majestic Waterfowl Sanctuary
quarantines our waterfowl for a minimum of 14 days
before allowing them to co-mingle with our existing
flock or listing them available for adoption.
2. Fecal exams are performed on all
incoming waterfowl to ensure your new family member is
parasite free. Random fecal tests are also done
periodically to ensure the continued health of our
rescues. In addition, all ducks and geese are
given a precautionary delousing treatment within 24
hours of arriving at our sanctuary and a second
treatment on their 14th day here.
3. We take bio-security very
seriously and utilize vet-recommended Virkon S as a safe
disinfecting solution in our pens.
4. In order to maintain
Connecticut’s strict level of bio-security, all
waterfowl arriving from out-of-state locations have
tested negative for Avian Influenza (H5 & H7 strains)
prior to entry into our sanctuary, per the guidance of
our State Vet.
We get our
waterfowl off to the best start…
5. We work with an experienced,
certified veterinarian to ensure that any waterfowl
needing medical attention or precursory exams get that
attention within a day of their arrival. We keep medical
records for all of our waterfowl and will provide copies
to adopters upon request.
6. Our ducks and geese are all
maintained on a diet of fresh, top-of-the-line Mazuri
Waterfowl brand-name feed. Healthy greens are
supplemented in colder seasons.
7. Our private grounds are kept
clean and safe. Our enclosures resemble habitats and
ensure serene and comfortable conditions for all of our
waterfowl. Calm, stress-free birds are more adaptable to
new situations, making transitions to your family easier
on them and on you.
8. We distribute a monthly
informational newsletter that addresses common flock
9. We provide free post-adoption assistance and
support. We respond to most inquiries within 24 hours of
10. We will take back any of our
adopted waterfowl without question, should your
situation change or should the adoption not work out for
soon--reason # 11 !
11. Majestic Waterfowl Sanctuary
will soon be prepared to offer duck and goose-sitting
services. Those families who adopt their birds from us
will receive a deposit-free contract and
discounted rates when they need a sitter.
