sanctuary haunted? Are those little web-footed spirits
in the pen???
& Michele sent us ghost ducks! Ha ha ha!
thing is... I have them in one of our empty pens and I

Jocamo was adopted yesterday! He's going to live with
a Pekin duck named Connie (who we also rescued and

to this little man... and I was so worried about how
Jabberwocky the gander would react since he's very

vision. If he loses his vision in both eyes, we're
planning to do a fundraiser to do cataract surgery to
restore vision in one eye. In waterfowl they don't

other way. He's such a chatter box and loves to go on
and on about the world around him--he needs to see that
