A fellow homeschooler and customer (whose identity shall remain protected unless she chooses to reveal herself in the comments below 🙂 ) brought me an abandoned mallard duckling that had hatched on her property. The mother marched off with the other nine leaving this little gal/guy behind.
Quackers is very weak, so may not be with us for long but what a cutie. He is drinking his sugar water just fine, but hasn’t taken much interest in food. He is warm on his towel under the heat lamp. He is about 2 days old.
(Update: Quackers passed away after we had him for 4 days. He clearly had neurological issues.)
Also today, Cassie went to visit the famous Duggar family at a book signing in Camp Hill. Her brush with fame was very exciting for her. The entire family was there plus the eldest’s very pregnant wife and first child.
