Who would have thought that Aflac was famous before she came to our house? What a great picture and what a great memory for this family.
Aflac was left…abandoned…inadvertently misplaced in a large park in town. As any well socialized duck, left to her own devices, she waddled in to join the party; placing herself in the picture. This was a family professional photo shoot. Lasting memories for a little boy.
A note to whoever lost Aflac. I don’t know your reasons. It could be that your neighbors disliked her quacking at meal times, or the duck poop or maybe she just outgrew her cuteness.
Backyard Chickens says this about Pekin Ducks
“Friendly, forage well, stay close to house, easy to tame”
“Grows fast for meat, extremely efficient layers, adorable, entertaining, friendly, Good watch ducks”
“Eat a lot, poop a lot”
“Can be overly noisy, very messy, poop machines”
we don’t understand how anyone can abandon any living creature. I myself, the cat version, was abandoned in Brooklyn, NY. Some kind soul placed me in a shelter and eventually I made my way to my new and loving home in Boston. the duck photo is priceless, xo LMA
