About Vivienne

Vivienne was surrendered by someone whose parents were selling their farm. Formerly named Princess, we asked our volunteers to brainstorm on a perfect new name for her - and we think Viv fits her regal looks and sweet personality. While her signature puff is adorable, sadly, it comes at a cost. Ducks like Vivienne have been bred to have vented skulls and unprotected brains in order to produce the cute "puff". This means Vivienne is more prone to neurological issues or brain trauma than other ducks. There are times when she struggles with her balance, and we make sure to support her (literally) while she swims, preens, and eats. Viv is a really special gal.
