Rescued Ducks Discover the Water for the First Time

October 6, 2012 Updated: July 12, 2022

Ducks were rescued from a hoarder, who was keeping over 160 fowl in filthy, overcrowded conditions. These birds had never even seen a pond. But the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary has nursed them back to health, repairing infections, injured feet, and nutritional deficiencies — and now you can watch these rehabilitated ducks learn to swim. In the video, you can see how at the beginning the ducks keep running away from the water in what, as one Woodstock worker points out, looks just like a Benny Hill routine. Then for the first time, one of them figures out that the water is amazing, and then they all follow along.
