We lost our good friend, Pelican, today. She was a lovely white Pekin duck. The oldest duck in the barnyard and the friendliest too. Pelican was ClaireAnna's favorite. The only duck of hers that would happily eat out of her hand. I guess she was stressed from the breeding season and never quite recovered. She developed an infection and though we treated her, she passed away today. We've had a lot of tears and sadness thinking about how much we loved that sweet, funny, little duck. ClaireAnna has drawn a picture of Pelican to help her remember. Pelican had a free, happy, duck life and we sure are going to miss her in the barnyard.
