    About a month ago I lost one of my 2 runner females. The one I have left is very lonely and needs another duck friend. Are there any farm animal or poultry rescue agencies around south west Virginia that adopt out animals? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Look up duck rescues in South West Virginia if there are any they should come up. We have one about 2 hrs from us called Carolina Water fowl rescue and they adopt out domestic water fowl they rescue.

    On craigslist there are a lot of muscovies for sale. would a muscovy female beat up or hurt my runner female?

    You know you can't put them together right off, they'd have to meet through fencing for a short time till they got to know each other but once they did they could live together fine.Both being females.

    Ok thank-you for the help. I will be getting a mallard male and female, and a runner male and female this spring. Will the 2 males have any problems with the Muscovy?
