THE DUCKS ARE ONE MONTH OLD
As you can see, there's an outdoor space for the ducks to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine and still be protected from predators. At night they walk up the ramp to get inside by the glowing red heat lamp. They seem to be enjoying their new home and some nights you can hear them partying until the wee hours.
George found a veterinarian in the next town with a fowl expert. On Thursday he was able to take Daisy to their office. After keeping her overnight, the vet discovered that Daisy has a sprained ankle (?!?) and needs to be isolated from the rest of the flock until she recovers which should take about ten days. They provided a painkiller and anti-inflammatory that we have to administer with a syringe which Daisy isn't too happy about. Hopefully, she'll make a full recovery and return to her friends.
