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.

Switch lost his mother to a predatory attack when he was very small, but he was soon brought here to safety and has since lived the life of luxury. He is a Pekin, Blue Swede, Magpie mix.

This gorgeous guy LOVES treats! He often rushed in to steal nightcrawlers from our fingers. He is definitely ruled by his tummy! We had to work hard to insure the other ducks all got their fair share of tasty treats because this guy was always on his webbed toes!

Switch was adopted to a wonderful and loving home with two hens! Oh boy, is he going to be surprised!!!

Egor is a young Pilgrim gander who came into our sanctuary in August 2009. His mother & father were abandoned when their human family moved away and left them behind to fend for themselves. The parent geese walked up the street to a pond and hatched out 5 goslings there. 

While Egor's family was relocated to a loving new home, he was on the verge of death and required emergency medical treatment that resulted in him missing out on following along with his family.

Egor came to us very lethargic and kept his head and neck curled up into his body, which is commonly referred to as limberneck. After two months of potent antibiotics he finally pulled through and received the official "all clear" from our vet. Egor was finally able to come out of quarantine and join our other geese.

Egor blended quickly and easily into our gaggle and respectfully follows his new leaders around. Unfortunately, after having to give him so much medicine to save his life, he was pretty nervous around humans, but time and lots of TLC began to restore his trust in us again.

Egor's follow up exams and bloodwork all showed that he had made a full recovery, and he was adopted into a loving home. His family now consists of a few ducks (including Switch!) and a bunch of chickens. His new Momma Goose will be adopting a rescued goose to accompany Egor as well.

Special Thanks to Dr. Otka at "All Friends Animal Hospital" for helping us save Egor's life!

Pickles is a human-imprinted Muscovy hen who was found trying to survive on the ocean shore. Her rescuer brought her to our sanctuary for some R&R and then she was adopted by the same family who adopted Dutch!

Dutch and Pickles fell in love at first sight. Pickles also made friends with a Chocolate Muscovy hen named Kisses.
