Drakes disapearing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

HI Everyone,

 

I have three free range male ducks. This morning I couldn't find them anywhere.They have been missing for at least 7 hours. I don't have any females. As it is spring time would they just leave to find a partner? They seem to be really happy here. They roam around the yard and would garden with us. I don't think anything could have taken all three of them. There are no feathers anywhere. :fl

 

Thank you

If they can fly then it is entirely possible they left to find some female ducks. I don't know what the chances are of them returning. Is there a large pond or body of water nearby that you know of? You could check there. But there are some predators that will take a bird whole and leave nothing behind. I sure hope you find some answers.

HI,

 

Thanks. We live right by the ocean. I can't think of any bodies of water apart from the sea. Do you think something would have taken all three of them without leaving any evidence? They are all quite large.
