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.

Elijah was a real sweetheart who shared his snuggles and hugs of appreciation with us every day. Elijah was rescued from a local pond in the Fall of 2004. He had suffered serious and permanent leg injuries from his time spent on its dangerous rocky shores and from a life-threatening raccoon attack. He received the best vet care available and soon recovered, although his limp never left him. We playfully called Elijah "Squints" as a result of his near miss raccoon bite that left his eye with a permanent, and oddly happy-looking, wink.

Elijah was granted lifetime retirement at Majestic along with a few other ducks at our sanctuary. He and Jezebel were our Majestic King & Queen, a kind and loving couple, respected throughout the sanctuary.

Elijah is the only drake we have ever known who could share his pen with another drake without any problems at all and in any season. He has shared his pen with Jake The Drake, Joven and, in the end, with Aladdin.

Elijah enjoyed sharing part of his days on the pond with all of the ladies and another portion of his day with his drake penmate. In the evenings, he and Jezebel shared a large kennel in the barn.

After surviving harsh abandonment on jagged, rocky shores and a subsequent raccoon attack, Elijah retired here with us and spent four loving years in our care. We fawned over him and spoiled him dearly. Sanctuary life always revolved around Elijah and he had many sponsors and supporters throughout.

Elijah was euthanized on August 15, 2008 when his legs finally failed him and he became ill. We held him in our arms and eased him to the other side to prevent him any more hardships in this world.

Jezebel is a Silver Appleyard hen who suffered neglect and hunger in her prior home. She is one of our retired rescued ducks. She is a lovely girl who kept Elijah very happy.

Lewy was originally found injured near a street. A local citizen, suspecting he had been hit by a car, moved him to a nearby public pond in the hopes he would fare better there. Lewy survived on the pond for the past 5-6 years thanks to another local who has been caring for him and feeding him every day. Now that this caretaker is moving away, she knew Lewy could not survive on his own and arranged for him to come to us.

Lewy has a crooked tail, and he has an uneven keel, which resulted from a hernia, which probably happened when he was hit by a vehicle. After coming to us they both became less noticeable when he fattened up!

Lewy was adopted by a family who is going to find him a lady Toulouse goose of his own to love just as soon as they can. In the meantime, he will have chickens, ducks and sheep as companions.
