male Pekin Domestic Duck
Franklin loves to root around the yard eating grass, bugs and whatever else looks good. He also loves to swim, splash and preen his feathers. Franklin can be kind of naughty sometimes and enjoys biting my bare toes in the summer.
What My Pet Means to Me:
I rescued Franklin from the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center; someone had found him wandering around their neighborhood and brought him in to get help. Immediately I fell in love with him and his bold personality. It is really calming to watch Franklin and my other two ducks room the yard, swim and just be ducks. Franklin is a great stress reliever and always seems to be in a good mood.
