    I run a small animal rescue, and though it's usually strictly wildlife and foster kittens, I had a small patient that I just couldn't turn down...

    I work as a counselor at a local farm camp, and sometimes they have wildlife they need me to rehab. In this case however, they had a domestic 1 day old duckling that was attacked by the farm dog, and would of been euthanized if I couldn't take her. I couldn't turn let that happen, of course, but ducklings need company or they can get depressed. So I ended up buying a two month old silkie for company! What's two more permanent sanctuary residents... right? :hilarious: *sigh*

    Here's a picture (her head is a lot better now, but not totally healed. At one point I thought she would lose one of her eyes!)

    They're so fuzzy and adorable! I've never had one before so I'm very exited to see what happens. It's so cute to watch the silkie marching around with the duckling in tow:laugh:

    Congrats. So kind of you to take the duckling into your home and care for him/her and also nice of you to get him/her a friend.
    They are both very cute.
