    We had a pair of Indian Runner ducks and one of them died today. They hatched in 2011. I think it was the male that died so we have a female. I am worried she will die of loneliness. She was hanging with the chickens a little bit today. We've lost 4 animals in the last month and that is too much to handle :(

    No takers? She is lonely. Will she survive with just the chickens?

    Can you ship her? I live in Illinois, but I would be happy to have her. I have some of ducks here she could be friends with. I know being shipped is not fun, but I would make it up to her.

    I would love to take her, I have indian runner ducks, but I'm in central Oregon and can't get up your way anytime soon, any chance you'd be traveling my way sometime? You can also try giving her a nice nig rooster to bond with, depending on the predator, he might scare it away.

    I would hate to ship her that far. Thanks for the offer though.

    Thank you! That is a long, long drive for me. I wish I was heading your way. She is talking so much looking for a mate. I think I found a free male for her yesterday. My daughter lives that direction so she is going to pick it up so I don't have to go so far. I hope she is ok until he gets here Saturday. I've been wondering if a mirror would help her.

    What happened to the other duck? I'm so sorry for your loss. I live in Issaquah, we could meet in the middle somewhere?

    Do you still have the duck? If so where are you at?
