Many of you are aware I had been rehabilitating a Pekin duck that was attacked back in May. She was in rough shape when I got her.
I named her J, and after cleaning the maggots out of her wounds, worked a lot on her duck physical therapy.
She walked and swam several times each day, and ate a high protein diet. I admit, she was rather spoiled during the time she spent with me. It's not often a duck gets to tube, kayak, or ride IN a motor boat, but J was able to do all those things. In the end, J recovered nicely. She may always have a bit of a limp, and be a tad smaller than her siblings, but she's healthy.
Her sisters were very excited to see her. They bobbed heads and greeted each other noisily!
