Yesterday was a sad day at Pukeatua Farmstay. We had to say goodbye to Peekie, our female Buff Orpington Duck.
She was all well the night before and in the morning we found her in a corner of the duck run. She must have died overnight.
The bite marks on her neck could indicate rats, stoats or ferrets. Maybe time to invest into some traps.
We buried her in the bank not too far away from Trever, one of our rescue ducks.
