A Tweet by user, fagocytosis @Yournameistyler, about Gorgie City Farm’s resident duck, Olive, has captured the imagination of Twitter users. The Tweet now has over 39,000 likes, 11,000 retweets, as well as comments in a number of different languages.
Gorgie City Farm’s “very special and unusual duck” has an information poster not unlike a dating profile. She likes people, eating snails and worms, rain, going for a walk…that’s about it!
She does NOT like other ducks, guinea pigs, tortoises, rabbits, any other animals, or anything else!
