Alfalfa: The Story of a Duck from Lake Afton in Yardley, PA
Battle Ground Creative, 2018 - Pets - 50 pages
I live next to Lake Afton in Yardley, Pennsylvania. I greatly enjoy watching the ducks, geese, and wildlife that I see at the lake. Each spring, I look forward to seeing a Canadian goose, Mallard duck, or Pekin duck sitting on her nest as she waits for her eggs to hatch. Each egg takes about 28 days to hatch and the mother ducks must sit on their eggs for 23 hours per day in order to properly incubate them. In the spring of 2012, I unexpectedly became the mother of a Pekin duck, who I named Alfalfa. When I would tell people about him, they would often ask lots of questions. I would then show them pictures of Alfalfa and tell them my story. Nowadays, when folks see me around town and ask how I'm doing, their next question is typically "How's Alfalfa?" Who would think a duck could be so intriguing? Alfalfa certainly has that effect on people. This is his story.
