Mr. Duck has made great strides since the last episode of Celebrity Duck Rehab. According to the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, Indian Runner ducks are great foragers. Having been raised a child star, Mr. Duck hadn’t even stepped foot inside a grocery store, let alone done any actual foraging for himself. I am happy to report that after some scratch-grains-served-under-water therapy he’s now quite adept at foraging both under water and above ground. You can see him here doing his best anteater impersonation.
We have also been working diligently on his social skills, given that it was his lack thereof that got him suspended. The chickens come to visit him often.
“They’re eating my grain. I don’t want them eating my grain,” he said.
“But, Mr. Duck, they are your guests. You remember how you are supposed to treat guests, right? You follow their lead and assist them however you can.”
“Hello, the best grains are at the bottom of the pan. Go ahead, stick you’re head in there,” he said.
“Mr. Duck! She’s a chicken, she’ll drown!”
“Oops, my bad,” said Mr. Duck sarcastically.
I don’t think his therapy is quite complete. Perhaps another month.
