Duckling Update (With My Apologies)

Some furiends, like the famous and loveable blog readers Jed and Abby have asked for a duckling update. So sorry! Life at our home is rather hectic since the Great Dane puppies arrived. The duckling story had a much happier ending than we could have ever imagined. I'm going to redirect you to their initial home, their "birthplace", Creekhiker's blog. 





In sum: All ducklings and their mama are thriving. They are nearly 2 months old and almost full fledglings. They are wild enough to rehabilitate. They've already survived a few days in their new surroundings. Whatever happens next . . . it's up to Mother Nature.

Vaya Con Dios, Duck Family! Thank you for letting us take care of you and change your dirty stinky water every day. We are all too happy with the outcome. It was all worth it!

We have seen them at Creekhiker's blog. Looks like they are all doing well, and they have a great Mom there too.

The pool water looks pretty clean to us - good job.

We're behind, so we missed the move. We're off to Creekhikers to read all about it. It's a mitzvah you were willing and able to provide sanctuary for so long. Hope they all make it. Thanks for the update, and the kind words.

Yes, Kudos to your mom Twink! It was a BACK BREAKING job to take care of those ducks.

Rottrover was with me counting ducklings and all 10 and Mama Mallory are fine and well!

I spied them last night... a large group taking cover in the tall grass but that's all I got to see as I had two rambunctious pups with me!

What good news for the duckies. You were very good not to try & eat them.
