So I was at the vet's today and they say that a peking duck (male) needs a home ASAP. Owner is leaving town and needs someone who will keep him as a pet (not dinner) and has a fenced yard. I understand he runs away, not flies away, runs. Hmmm. Anyway, if any one is interested, the phone number at the Academy Vets office is 821-6900. I spoke with Laura. BTW...if the little fella doesnave a home by Wednesday, the owner will have him snuffed out. Yeah,...weird. So, the vet's folks really want this guy to get a home...as a pet, with a fence...per current owner.
I was told that i might want to remove the "peking" if he wasn't gonna be bound for the dinner table. Sigh. Anyway, it is spelled, Pekin. Big white and big billed. I hope someone saves this guy.
