One day an unusual call came to RLRR shelter- Would we take two ducks and a chicken? Well, of course we never say “no” so began our adventure with Drake, Ducky Doodle and Henny Penny. The owner had bought the chick and ducklings at the Fleet Farm and had taken great care of them through the summer. But now it was fall and there was no way to shelter them so they called on us.
We first were able to catch Drake, but then the other two were wise to our plan and evaded us. Kathryn and Karen stopped over that evening and Kathryn was able to catch Ducky Doodle who was the most difficult, dodging us in bushes, and was a fast runner.
The second-in-command rooster came over afterwards to try to make nice, but Henny Penny was more interested in going with her duck friends to meet the ducks from earlier this summer :-)
