Plumed Whistling Duck Chicks

13 May 2016 10:02:36

Plumed Whistling Duck Chicks

We are so excited, our latest editions to our Daintree Rainforest Exhibit have arrived!

Earlier this year our Plumed Whistling Ducks were relocated from our Butterfly Tropics exhibit to our Daintree Rainforest exhibit and from day one, they thrived!

The change happened around mating season which is between January and March. The Plumed Whistling Ducks thriving, laid and gave birth to 3 little chicks. Their Mother and Father are very protective and will chase away any other ducks that come close.

One of our chicks is currently in rehabilitation as they hurt their leg, but is making a promising recovery and will be reuinted with their family soon!

You can see the ducklings and proud parents at the Daintree Rainforest Exhibit alongside Princess the Cassowary.
