Felix

tells his story

A few weeks ago, an animal-loving lady discovered an injured duck by the roadside. The beautiful brown, black and white mallard had been hit by a car and was waiting for rescuing hands. The lady named the drake Felix and put him in the garage for the time being.

Felix has now changed his place of residence and moved into one of the duck and goose houses along the small pond at Gut Aiderbichl Henndorf.



"Räb, Räb" is the call of the drakes.

"Räb, räb, I like it here. I have already found a new friend, Hansi, a mallard. He was also found along the path. We like to waddle around the farm together and are amazed at the pretty ducks and geese that are out and about here. Räääb. Very interesting".

There are no real dangers for Felix here. Hundreds of thousands of mallard ducks are shot every year, a thing that can't happen to him at Gut Aiderbichl. The farm is also not a road where he could be injured by a car. So, he concentrates mainly on the good food, the small, romantic pond in the adjoining forest near the squirrel enclosure, and the lovely duck and goose ladies.

Quack, quack, cackle, cackle - have you discovered the new one yet? I think Maxime the humpback goose calls him Felix. He's pretty. I just noticed that he really likes the curly geese. Ernie, the running duck, is getting jealous, because those are his girls.

So Felix, the mallard, brings unrest into the Henndorfflock of ducks and geese, but no one is really angry with him. He is charming and quickly towards the squirrel release enclosure, if the situation becomes too serious.

Räb, räb. The fact is that we birds, in this case ducks and geese, live mainly in pairs, faithfully with a partner. I'm just looking for a partner. That is quite normal. No one needs to get particularly "chattery", räb, I mean upset. We are all doing wonderfully here. There is water for bathing, wonderful little houses where we are protected at night. The food is green salad, pasta, etc. Wonderful. What more do we want?

Felix is a peaceful duck and is just happy to have so many conspecifics around him. He is also becoming more and more trusting and lets himself be stroked by the humans from time to time. Of course, Felix hopes for a leaf of green salad or a tiny piece of dry bread. When the sun is shining, you can find Felix by the little house with the cast-off deer antlers.
