I have to get rid of my 2 amazing ducks. They are both BLUE SWEDE drakes and are attempting to mate my chickens which could seriously hurt/kill them. The two are an amazing pair. One was attacked my raccoons about 2 months ago and nearly died. He spent 2 days in the hospital. He had a broken wing, punctured sinuses and was very badly bitten. He has since fully recovered an I just waiting to lose the feathers that were messed up from his cast. He is 5 months old. The other was a rescue and is equally important to me, but I have no specifics on his age. They are both extremely friendly but are not imprinted so do not let you just reach and touch them. They happily eat out of your hand though. I love these ducks very much so would like to see them go to a good home which is why i am posting them here... They have a kiddie pool here and free-range with the chickens during the day. They as of now all sleep together as well. I know they would love other ducks as well as they are not at all aggressive. The younger one thinks he is a chicken which is why he may be trying to mate them as the older one has never tried but I will not split them up. In case anyone doesnt know...i decided to add these specifics as there are some misconception about drakes being loud because they are boys. Males are MUCH QUIETER than females as males do not quack. Only females quack. Males have a quiet garble sound. The puffs on their heads are normal. They are referred to as "tufted" and it is not an injury or defect i can not ship them, so a local pickup would be required. i love them very very dearly and this is absolutely killing me to do this so i hope someone with a good heart/home can help.
