    Muscovy Hens For Adoption (and rescue tbh)

    I really don't know. She's an agricultural worker and I didn't ask her. She's selling all of them and doesn't have any hens to lay once they're gone. Regardless, I needed a hen and am glad to have given this one a good home.

    Muscovy Hens For Adoption (and rescue tbh)

    Hello! I just adopted a white muscovy hen from a place in Santa Paula, CA -- she has four more available. Mine looked bedraggled when I brought her home, but has clean feathers now and no longer smells like duck poop (she's the white one in the photo, whom I call Poppy). I think the woman...

    spoiled ducks 😂

    Glad to know it’s not just my ducks being weirdos! I think my runner would stay outside and forage and swim - she LOVES the water more than the others - but she’s not top of the pecking order and follows the drake who is whenever the spirit moves him to the patio where they all stare in through...

    FYI - Dead Chick deliveries due to Postal Delays

    I do like that about Metzer -- they tape the gro gel to the box, opened. It hydrates and gives nutrition. I wish every place did that, though it's still no guarantee the animals will be OK. I think some probably are just too traumatized by the shipping thing to adjust.

    FYI - Dead Chick deliveries due to Postal Delays

    OMG I'd freak out if that happened to my cat or dog. How terrifying -- poor things. I'm glad it turned out ok. Hope you're liking your new home in L.A. -- especially the triple digit heat and occasional smell of smoke. Isn't if fabulous?! My ducks have come inside every day this week (in a...

    FYI - Dead Chick deliveries due to Postal Delays

    WOW -- where I live the post office calls you the morning the ducks/chicks arrive and you have to go pick them up. They don't deliver to your door. I must say that the postal worker was very gentle with my little box from Metzer (I live in Southern California, so they didn't have far to go, but...

    FYI - Dead Chick deliveries due to Postal Delays

    They shouldn't be shipping right now knowing this -- farms/hatcheries should suspend USPS orders. It's animal cruelty at this point.

    spoiled ducks 😂

    I let my ducks come into the house. They just want to hang out - I feel bad forcing them outside like common barnyard animals or something 🤣

    Can’t identify their quacks...

    Ain't that the truth! This morning for the first time, my Indian Runner (called Fleur -- though possibly a Drake, oh well) sounded kind of like a train whistle. She also sounds like a chicken sometimes. When she was younger, around three weeks old, she had a temporary quack that disappeared. So...

    Can’t identify their quacks...

    Thanks for your response - there’s such an assortment of sounds from them that it’s confusing - and one of the pekins makes a sound that the other one doesn’t lol. The runner seems to change vocalizations daily.

    Can’t identify their quacks...

    Hi - I’m new to raising and caring for ducks, and this website has helped me SO much over the past 7 weeks. Thank you!! However, despite all the info here, I still can’t figure out the genders of three of my ducks based on the sounds they make. One of them — a buff drake — I got from Metzer. The...
