Not keeping our ducks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I got these ducks for the eggs. Except it turns out they're all males. What do I do with them? I can't eat my own ducks. But I don't mind if someone else does. Would I ever be able to find someone looking for drakes? We've decided to take the winter off and try again next spring. I just don't know what to do with these guys.

Perhaps there is a duck or exotic bird rescue near you? A less attractive option would be craigslist?

Place an ad on craigs list many people like the taste of Muscovy. I have them and cannot imagine eating mine.  also we have a re homing thread here to but for sure put them on craigs list they'll go fast I'm pretty sure.
