PJ’s Wildlife Orphanage was founded by Pamellia Johnson, who lived in Ontario, Canada. She had rescued several wild animals and taken care of them as her own children. She had recently nurtured two baby ducks.
Cassie, the first duck, picked the wrong end of the egg to hatch. So Johnson had to help her along. The baby duck widened the hole of the egg a little. When Pamellia woke up, the little duck was already out of her egg the following day.
The baby duck was utterly exhausted after she came out. Johnson got slightly concerned about Cassie getting up on her own because she was twisted around so much inside the egg. However, after a few hours, the baby duck just lifted her head up and was completely fine after that.
Johnson moved Cassie along with Carl, the other baby duck. They bonded like two peas in a pod when they met each other. The first night they spent together, they always had synchronized sleeping. The head of the two baby ducks would slowly go down and then jerk back up. They always did this at precisely the same time.
Cassie and Carl would always come up to their mother when she called them. The two of them always followed their human mom everywhere. If Johnson sat down, the two would climb up and sit on her shoulders.
The ducks loved to play in the water. Johnson had the two baby ducks placed in the bathtub where they played and splashed water on one another. These two little ones grew very fast. Their adult feathers had now started to show up.
Johnson decided to take these almost adult ducks outside. The first time she took Cassie and Carl to the porch, and then, later on, she let them out in the backyard. The two birds enjoyed running back and forth. Soon, the kind bird mom decided to build them a pond area. Unfortunately, these breeds of ducks actually couldn’t fly, so they wouldn’t do well in the wild. So, Johnson decided to keep them safely with her.
