Abandoned duck gets a lift from Easton Farmers Market | Turkeys and Trophies


A white Pekin duck became the unofficial mascot of of the Easton Farmers Market last week after it settled into the fountain at Easton's Centre Square for a few days. Market Director Megan McBride was alerted to the duck's prescence after people posted photos of it on social media. Fortunately for the duck, whose wings might have been clipped,  farmers market intern Peter Todaro has experience working with fowl, having raised ducks on a farm in upstate New York on a previous internship. Todaro, who dubbed it "Sir Edward McQuacken," said it probably had been living in and drinking chlorinated water for a few days — not a healthy option for any animal. Todaro and farmers market worker Brittany Vokoun took the duck to the market office, washed it, fed it and relocated it to Wallens Mountain Farm in  Raubsville.
