    I'm in a situation where I need to find a good, loving, experienced duck home. We have 2 ducks, white, unsure of the breed, and I believe both female (but one has me questioning- she's large and in charge) and need to find them a home. They were born this spring, April. I was assured they would be fine staying with the chickens when I got them but that is not really working out. I don't have a good habitat for them so I worry they don't have as good a life as they should. I was really set up to get a few chickens. Also, one is lame. I don't like her to walk far because of the limp, so I carry her when she needs put away in the night. Her foot turns under. I don't have a pond which I would think might help strengthen that leg and perhaps rehab a little. They don't like the pool I tried out for them. Everything I read on line is it will likely stay that way to some extent. They are very bonded so they would need to stay together. I can't give them to someone who will eat them, just can't live with that knowledge.
    So we are in the Frederick Maryland area. If anyone would have room in their yard/farm and hearts please let me know. I can bring them to you.

    Wish I could help, just down in St. Mary's, MD. Our two Pekins turned out to be both boys so they are now just yard pets. Don't know how my dad would feel about more ducks...I hope you find someone who can take them.
