Pamellia Johnson, who lived in Ontario, Canada, founded PJ’s Wildlife Orphanage. She had rescued several wild animals and cared for them as if they were her own children. She had recently raised two baby ducklings.
Cassie, the first duck, hatched from the wrong end of the egg. So Johnson had to assist her. The baby duck widened the egg’s hole slightly. Pamellia awoke the next day to find the little duck had already left her egg.
After she emerged, the baby duck was completely exhausted. Because Cassie was twisted around so much inside the egg, Johnson was concerned about her getting up on her own. However, after a few hours, the baby duck simply lifted her head up and was fine.
Cassie was moved along with Carl, the other baby duck, by Johnson. When they met, they clicked like two peas in a pod. They always slept together the first night they were together. The two baby ducks’ heads would slowly drop and then jerk back up. They always did it at the exact same time.
Cassie and Carl would always approach their mother when she called. They were always following their human mother around. When Johnson sat, the two would climb up on her shoulders.
The ducks enjoyed playing in the water. Johnson placed the two baby ducks in the bathtub, where they played and splashed each other with water. These two little ones grew up quickly. Their adult feathers had begun to emerge.
Johnson decided to let these nearly adult ducks out. She took Cassie and Carl to the porch the first time, and later let them out in the backyard. The two birds had a lot of fun running back and forth. Soon after, the caring bird mother decided to construct a pond for them. Unfortunately, these ducks cannot fly and thus would not fare well in the wild. As a result, Johnson decided to keep them safe with her.
