    With the daylight change, etc our free range ducks have been coming back later in the day. Well, something got 2 of them and now poor Emily is quacking and lonely. I have posted on Craigslist and searched but can't seem to find anything. Emily is a Runner and I'm not picky except we would prefer a duck that won't fly away (and I don't want to clip wings).

    So, any ideas? We are in southeastern CT.

    We have a rescue but the ducks they have are in pairs and large for the current area I have. I am digging through old e-mails now trying to see if anyone I know has something.

    I could give you a call drake who is on the large side and imprinted but they do fly a little so probably not what you are looking for. Good luck finding one!

    I'm trying to rehome 3 ducks for a friend - she's terminally ill and isn't able to care for them throughout the winter.

    Unfortuneatly I'm in southeastern NH - ... might be able to work something out ? ...

    There is 1 male peking and 2 brown/blackish females (I don't know what they are) ... they have their small man-made pond and have always stuck around !

    Also have 3 female Geese [​IMG] if your interested - 2 african gray and 1 toulouse (females).

    ALL FRIENDLY ! a few years old (I'd say 3 ish ? )

    I'm also in NH and have some extra males that we would be willing to sell. They are Holderreads birds shipped this last spring. I only have males to part with (specifically a fawn and white runner who is exhibition quality. I would have a rehoming fee to recoup what we paid for him. You can PM me through here if interested.
