Adopted duck Star enjoys Chulmleigh owner's ale taste

A duck "adopted" by a Devon man after being rejected by hostile siblings has acquired its owner's love of beer.

Star, an Indian Runner duck, was rescued from its incubator by Barrie Hayman two years ago.

The 67-year-old, from Chulmleigh, said the duck has become "selective" about what he drinks.

"Star doesn't like lager - he's definitely a real ale duck, but I make sure he doesn't have too much," Mr Hayman told BBC News.
