“Look what I have.” Singer Samantha Steenwick sits on the sofa with three fluffy ducks on her neck in a video she posted of herself on Instagram. “These little ducks were alone with us in the trench and still too young to survive the night itself, so I had to catch them. My heart broke.”
Together with the neighbors, the singer pulled the little ducks out of the ditch, and there was no trace of the mother ducks. “They stayed here overnight and booked a bed and breakfast because they will be going to the bird sanctuary soon.”
The ducks were having a great time in the singer’s house. “They work very well. They are here on a hot water bottle or on my neck.” They were not lacking in anything in “Hotel Steenwijk”. “They’ve got great duck pieces. They eat, drink, and puddle, you know.”
The text continues below the Instagram post.
Ducks were named by Samantha’s lovers. “This is Diedrick, also known as Ditje,” the singer said as he carried one of the little ones in the air. “He looks very smart this duck.” The second bird with darker locks was named Holly. “And this is a sack,” Stenwick says, with the third duck in her hand. “Oh, she has a little less hair, which is why I thought, ‘This is a cute sack.'”
After spending one night with the famous singer, Samantha takes the little ducks to the De Wulp Bird Sanctuary in The Hague. She later wrote on social media: “You are doing well, little friends.”
So they stay here for a while and when they are old enough they can return to nature
In De Wulp the ducks are warm. “They are housed with all sorts so that they are not tamed,” says Sharon Lexmond of Birds Refuge. “The ducks are really still too young to live without their mother. So they will stay here for a while and when they are old enough they can return to nature.”
