About Fern

Fern was found abandoned in Milwaukee. Unfortunately, domestic ducks being "released into the wild" is not an uncommon problem, and most dumped ducks do not survive. Two Heartland volunteers rescued Fern, along with her sister, Jewel (who sadly passed away in 2020) and cared for them before they came home to Heartland.
