This article introduces a woman who rescues ducks in north central PA!
Whether it’s ducks or scrapbooking, hobbies certainly vary.
Debbie Colucci, of Ulysses, said her hobby is taking care of ducks.
“I use the eggs for baking and also give them to my friends,” Colucci said. “I also take great pride in my ducks (and) I take in ducks that are in crisis. I just got two girls that (were) dropped off at (an) abandoned farm; they had to defend for themselves, then there pond froze over, so they had to walk across a street where three of them got hit and died they are here now. I will give them all the love they need!”
Colucci said she has developed a small network to help anyone trying to rehome a duck or to help ducks in crisis.
“I will try to help,” Colucci said. “A lot of people don’t realize how messy ducks are; they see chicks, get them, then realize how messy, how much the cost really is — the coops, feed, etc. — (then) people will just dump them in the creek well they cannot survive. These are domestic ducks, not wild, so I try to step in and help rehome or rehab, if needed.”
