Most people know about the animals that live at the fairgrounds temporarily during the N.C. State Fair, but there are also a handful of animals that make the fairgrounds their home the rest of the year. One such addition has found a new home in the Flower and Garden Show.
Workers first noticed the female duck in the area a couple of weeks ago. The hen soon made a nest out of a nearby hanging basket and has been living there ever since. Veterinarians have examined the duck, and she appears to be healthy and preparing to lay eggs.
We’ve really taken to this duck. In fact, we like it so much we’ve decided it needs a name and we want your help naming it. So, if you have a good name for our duck, leave a comment below, post to our Facebook timeline or send us a tweet on Twitter with your suggestion. You can submit as many names as you want, but we’ll only accept names until Monday, April 9 at 9 a.m.
On Monday, we’ll select a winner. That person will receive a Got to Be NC Festival prize pack, which will include lots of State Fair swag, as well as free admission to the Food and Wine Expo at the 2012 Got to Be NC Festival.
Hopefully, one of you can help us come up with a suitable name for our beloved duck. Now, get quacking!
