Chelsea came into our care when her sister was killed by an owl. We were requested to take her so she wouldn't be lonely and could live with other ducks. She is now part of our garden duck family and her favourite thing to do is swim in a pool filled with fresh water.
Ducky was surrendered into our care from a breeder who could no longer afford to feed him or the members of his flock. If Ducky was a human man he would be James Dean.

Ozzy is a curious and very happy, young Muscovy female. She was hand raised due to a leg deformity
and now resides with Polly and Piper in the waterfowl diverse needs area. Ozzy loves to swim and dive in
the pool and she has a new, blossoming romance with Scott, the sole male in the Bird Garden.
Dwelling amongst the tall trees and shade of the Forest Bird area, Phoebe prefers to keep to her herself.
Fiercely independent and self-assured, Phoebe has no time for the silly antics of her fellow birdmates and
can usually be found nesting quietly a safe distance away, where she can see, but not be directly involved
in, the larger bird flock commotion.
Piper likes to start each day with good, hearty wing flapping to get the kinks out; if she happens to whack
her friends in the face while she is doing it, that’s ok too. She is also well known for her constant, loud
quacking that sounds as if she has just been told the best knee-slapping joke of all time.
Polly has advanced arthritis in one leg which affects her mobility so her favourite way to spend the day is
bathing in a warm pool or nestling into a deep straw bed. She has bonded with our disabled Muscovy
duck, Ozzy, and the two love to nap together, necks entwined.
A true ‘gentleman’ duck if ever there was one. While he certainly adores his female companions, he is not
as pushy or demanding of them like other male ducks we know (we’re looking at you, Ducky
Scott exudes a calm, confident presence within the Bird Garden that makes everyone feel welcome and
Willow came into our care when a Sanctuary on the Sunshine Coast closed down in 2019. She has a condition known as "angel-wing" which causes large areas of her wings to "flair out". This is a reversible condition if treated early.
