    I am in the Joliet, Illinois area and have 5 ducks (2 Peking - 1 male, 1 female & 3 mallards - 2 male, 1 female) that are in need of a new home. My husband has run into some medical issues and I am no longer able to provide them the care that need and truly deserve. I would really prefer that they are not separated as they have been a family since 6 weeks old. These have been pets to us...they know to beg (complain [​IMG]) for food, water, clean pool, ect. With this being said, they CANNOT fend for themselves. They are very reliant on their owners to care for them so we would prefer they go to owners that have had (have) fowl. If you are interested, I can send pics and more information. We really would like to get them placed before the weather turns cold. Thanks everyone.

    Thanks so much for the response, however, I am apprehensive to rehome only one. I am concerned that, if you have ducks, they will not accept a new member. On the other hand, if you don't have ducks, a singular duck cannot survive alone....I have learned that they need "family". If you are interested in possibly 2 i would be willing to separate them that way. If not, I truly do appreciate your response. Thanks so much.
