    Hi all,

    I'm new with my handicapt drake duck Sammie. Hit by a car but survived! He lost his oil gland so can swim a bit but then after an hour slowly sinks. He steps out of the water the moment he starts sinking.

    For pictures and videos like the www.facebook.com/sammiedeeend fb page. He is now about 9 weeks old and starting to get his new colours. The green head, grey feathers etc.

    My name is Yvette and 28 years old from the Netherlands.

    Hi Yvette and welcome aboard! Glad to have you join us. Seems like you have a happy little duck there - great that you have managed to nurse him back to relative health. The duck thread will be obvious place for you to ask any questions that you may have - https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks - they are a friendly bunch, so do pop over and say hello.

    Best wishes

    Nice to meet you Yvette . Thank you so much for caring for Sammie, I'm sure he will have the best possible life with you. He's a little doll.

    Thank you all so mutch! Hope he will get very old. When we have our new home with big garden he wil get a friend. Female/male I'm not sure yet. Time wil tell. Maybe i find another duckling along the way. Its so much fun a duck around and in the house. He loves car rides also.
