Fern is a Muscovy duck. Muscovy ducks are a domesticated species that have long been bred for meat. Fern was rescued along with her brother Francis as abandoned pets at risk for euthanasia. Our landlord, Melissa is an avid bird-lover and rehabber and sent them our way.
Fern was abandoned as a baby with a leg deformity caused by a nutrient deficiency. Her foot had grown inward, and she was unable to use it. Unfortunately, she never regained strength in the injured leg. Fern has daily morning physical therapy stretches, pool time, and the sanctuary is working with the University of Hawaii's body mechanic students to create a prosthetic for Fern.
Fern is the sweetest little girl. She deserves all that life has to offer! She has become friends with Eve, a young blonde mallard resident at the sanctuary.
