    Hi lovely people!

    I’m gonna make this short, but I’ll give details when asked!

    6 weeks ago I hatched a duckling that was the only one left from the eggs I incubated. Since he was alone I got him a friend from the hatchery his egg came from. However now he has passed so his sister is all alone. They were in the house because he was special needs so they’ve grown up being in my house. Now that Penny is alone I’m worried she might get lonely so I’m looking for a solution if that were to happen.

    So if you’re in Ontario, Canada, or even in the states bordering southern Ontario, and you have a house duck that would like a Muscovy friend, please message me!

    I’m sorry you duckling passed away:( I’d take Penny in a minute if not so far away.

    How far are we talking? If it’s drivable I’d consider it if that means she will be treated like a princess and have a great life

    I live in Western NC way to far for either one of us to drive. I know @Going Quackers lives up there in that area and I was hoping she might help you out she has Muscovys.?

    PA wouldn’t be too terrible for me! I used to study in RI so I’m familiar with the day long drive lol. What kind of duck is your girl? Think she’d want a friend?

    I’d have to look into the guidelines for transporting a duck into the states
     
  10. Why does she need to be a house duck? It was the one who died that was special needs right? I am confused, it would seem easier to re-home her if you were open to her living outside with other ducks...
