One years foster is just £2 a month.
It’s quick, it’s easy and it really, really makes a difference to their lives.

Phantom the Muscovy drake came to us in January 2016 as he and his brother had been hand reared and on being put outside together with the other ducks, Phantom’s brother began bullying him badly and his owner was worried he would get seriously hurt. Phantom is a friendly bird and, if you like Muscovy’s, very handsome!

Sadly towards the end of 2016 our female duck Buttercup sadly died leaving Phantom the drake on his own. A search was instigated to find Phantom a companion and Gill, who takes our photographs, found a lovely brown Indian Runner cross duck and purchased her as a present to Phantom. He was delighted when his new duck arrived and she has rewarded us since with an egg a day! She did try to hide some at one point but was caught out and the nest of eggs removed as we do have a very strict no breeding policy here!
