    Just remember, it's for the best.... and your birds will give someone else joy. (At least that's what I keep telling myself)

    Is it that they will have no were to free range during winter and you can not afford the feed during winter?

    Quote:Featherfinder : I cant afford to feed 11 duck during winter. My mom is going to be doing natural foods for her chickens like worms, veggies ect and was gonna let my ducks have some, but never got it in this year. So either I rehome five ducks, or they starve all winter. And no, there is nothing to forage for in the winter here. And I would rather rehome then let em starve, ya know?

    Mahorni: yes, theres tons of people on CL (craigslist) lookimg for pet ducklings. I have a home for the khaki trio, but I need to find a home for my two female rouen ducklings. I dont want them to go, but I WONT let them starve.

    If anyone in east TN wants these two little rouen ducklings (females) PLEASE PM me for info! (or post here)
