Good-Bye Banjo


Sunday morning my beautiful "pie" Muscovy Banjo died.

I have only just been able to sit and write about her here. Banjo was an amazing duck as she was my only brooder when I wanted ducklings and was so good at being a mum. Also she was such a proud mum too.




For regular readers you will remember when Banjo went missing in September 2007. How happy we were when we got her back a couple of weeks later in October 07.

She's buried in the duck run and once the plum tree grows even bigger, she'll have afternoon shade sheltering her in the summer months.

Banjo was an adult duck when she came to live with us and such a special feathered friend. We'll miss you here at Lucky's Duck Farm. Thank you for your friendship and countless clutches of ducklings.

Until next time....hoo roo

I've just read the news. So sorry. Those animals that touch our heart, always travel with us no matter where they (or we) go.

What a faithful mum Banjo was. Lots of well wishes from us Lucky.

It's really sad when a much loved pet dies. It's nice that you have buried her in the duck run where she had happy times
take care

I am sorry to hear this. Some animals have a knack of getting under our skin, others are just there! But its the characters we miss the most!
