    I have 20 beautiful white pekin ducks that desperately need a new home. There is a giant snapping turtle in my pond and it has already gotten a hold of one of our ducks and now they are afraid to go in the water and I am afraid that more of them are going to become victims of this turtle. All of them must be taken at the same time to the same home. I do not want them separated. They are approximately 3 months old. Hopefully I can find them a good home soon. They are located in Pinellas Park Florida.

    There are people who will rid your pond or property of preds or pesky animals I was thinking more of bating and catching rehoming the snappers or having turtle soup.

    Did you find a home for your ducks? I am in need of a female duck, preferably a Pekin. She would have a wonderful home and very good care in San Francisco. Please contact me if you still need a home for your ducks!

    The easiest way to get a snapping turtle is to tie a heavy line to a milk jug and put the largest stainless steel hook you can find with a steel lead on the line. If you close the milk jug so that it will float and hook a chicken thigh bone-in (the stinkier the better) you will catch the turtle within the week. I have done this numerous times and the only hard part about it is hauling the turtles out of the water. Usually there isn't only one turtle though so always reset your trap for at least a week.

    I have just lost my female Pekin duck to an illness and would so love to find a female for my Pekin male Piotr. I might even take two. But would you send her to me in San Francisco? Is that possible? And I would pay most happily!
    My Piotr is so lost without his friend Posey and I am heartbroken!
    Either way, please do reply. It hurts so much to lose a duck that you have loved!

    Does anyone have or know of where I might find a Pekin female for my Piotr? He is so lonely without Posey and I am so very sad. We are in San Francisco and I offer lots of good care and a wonderful home!

    I need a white female Pekin duck for my male, Piotr, who just lost his mate. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Might we do for one of your girls?
