Huey, Dewey & Louie

Resident of the Month:

Huey, Dewey, and Louie are mixed breed runner ducks. They came to us when we heard a local woman had too many male ducks and they had grown aggressive. We told her we would take 4 ducks, but she was only able to catch 3 when it came time to rehome them. Although their names are not that creative, they seemed to fit perfectly because they are inseparable! Because they came here as adults, they do not trust us, at least not yet. They are beginning to allow me to get closer so I am hopeful that one day we will be able to pet them. The boys spend their days free ranging, mostly in the woods hunting for bugs. When not hunting for bugs, they can be found playing in their pool or napping. I thoroughly enjoy watching them no matter what they are doing. I now see why Tony Soprano was so enamored with the ducks in his pool! I also understand where the expression ‘ducks in a row’ originated since they always move around in a row. Never side by side, always in a row. The other amazing thing about these boys is their coloration in their feathers. When the sun hits their necks at different angles, their color will change from a deep, rich green to an amazing royal purple. I usually call them the Quacker Boys or Quackers for short because I just love that sound. Like a lot of kids, my parents used to bring us to feed the ducks when we were small. I think their quacks remind me of that time in my life. Their soft quacks and cute little waddle as they walk always brings a smile to my face. I thoroughly enjoy sitting and watching them in the woods hunting for bugs and playing in their pool. They bring joy to our lives and that is why they are the Residents of the Month.
