Make Way for Ducklings
On Saturday, we got a call from a young woman. She wanted to bring two young ducks to Red Door. She said she had bought them when they were only a few days old "because they were only $2.00." Now, as they approached 4 weeks of age, she didn't know what to do with them any more. --- Red Door was happy to welcome Cooper, a baby Pekin duck, and Khaki, a baby Campbell Khaki duck. Poor guys -- they'd been living on chicken feed, not duck food, all this time! --- We're happy to report Cooper and Khaki are safe at their new home, where they join a number of family pets, including a mature male duck who has turned himself into Mr. Mom for them.
