I’m sooo sorry, Saigey! She will always be in your heart and I know that!Hemmie, my little girl Australian Spotted, died quietly this morning, apparently in her sleep. She never showed any signs of distress or discomfort, never slowed in eating or playing or pooping. Her little lower tummy was still hard after she passed, and it looked like she had an internal prolapse. I'm hoping that Downey, the drake, will be okay and will make friends with the little wood duck female now. I'm really heartbroken, though.
That's exactly how it was with Hemmie. She was happy and doing everything that ducks do, and then I found her in the morning, just like she was sleeping.@Saigey I am so sorry to hear about Hemmie I'm so heartbroken for you. I know exactly how you are feeling I lost one of my Female Runners about a month ago, No symptoms outwardly just found her like she was sleeping one morning when I went in to let everyone out. They just hide sickness so well. Now you need to focus on Downey and getting him and your little wood duck together. Place them side by side and let them get to know each other. It's going to be different for Downey now that Hemmie isn't there. I am not being callous, honest but he will need this little one now even if he doesn't realize it yet.
I know how much you love those two little ones and we all enjoyed so much getting to know them and all the pictures. Please know you are in our hearts and please keep us updated on how you all are doing.
