Ducks and Geese Adopted

Here are photos of the ducks and geese that we have placed in permanent homes so far. We love to hear from their new families. If you have updated photos of a duck or goose you have adopted from us, or a story to share about them, please email us, so we can update this page for you.

Isis & Luna were rescued from a pond where they were dropped off and abandoned.  Isis has an orange bill and Luna has a green bill.

Both girls are very bossy and very loud, but a lot of fun to watch! These girls rule the roost. They love to swim, dive under water and then burst into the air in short flying spurts. They are high energy ducks and very entertaining.

Isis and Luna were adopted to a family with two Pekin hens named Thelma and Louise and are enjoying a new pond and new friends.

 


Neo arrived at our sanctuary in September of 2008. He had some serious digestive issues that need emergency care. His food would get hung up in his crop on the way down to his gizzard. As a result, despite eating, Neo was starving and could barely stand up he was so weak.

In addition to his crop issue, Neo suffered from vocal chord damage that occurred while he was abandoned on a pond. Our vet suspects he swallowed something that injured him. As a result, poor Neo had no quack. He opened his bill to quack, but only a slight whisper came out. 

America's Pet Store donated a special automated and timed feeder to help Neo during the first phase of his recovery in which he had to have timed meals comprised of ground Mazuri food. After three months on this diet we began chopping his food rather than grinding it and then we began mixing in whole food.

As Neo began to grow stronger, we began to realize that he had some serious neurological issues. He could not walk in a straight line, but staggered a bit from left to right as he waddled along. He also did not have the same problem-solving skills as other ducks and we had to pay very close attentive to his eating patterns to ensure he remembered to eat regularly throughout the day. 

With all these obstacles, Neo was still a sweet and gentle boy who let us hold and pet him. He even fell asleep in our hands.

Unfortunately, Neo's neuro issues grew worse and in late January he began to succumb to mild seizures and soon after he became ill and was rushed to the vet for euthanization. We held Neo in our arms and comforted him while he crossed over to the other side.

For more information about Neo see our October 2008 and November 2008 and March 2009 newsletter articles.
