Duck Healed


After 3 weeks rehab, the injured duck is now back to full health. She is now flying and regrown new feathers on her back. I will release her later this week away from the Drakes, and let her seek out her mate in her own time.

She has been eating a high protein diet of mealworm, grower pellets, and soft lettuce to aid feather growth, also regained some lost weight. It's nice to get a good result and be able to return her to the wild. Short clip below showing healed back and wing.
