    Hello, I have a 5 week old duckling who is in need of rehoming.
    My little sister got her as an easter gift and my mother no longer wants to look after the duckling. She/he has been in my care now and is in need of a home. Anyone who possibly has more ducks or a pond on there property. I live in an apartment, but did not want him/her to be dumped. He/She is a Mallard.

    I do not want to give him to a duck farm, because I don't want him to be food. I
    don't want him to go to a rehabilitation center because there isn't anything wrong with him.
    & I MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT want to DUMP him which many have been telling me to put him in a pond or location with other ducks.

    So instead I come here in search of someone who would love the new addition and treat him well.

    I do have food that I can leave you with. He is also diaper training, which I had to do because of my living situation. I can leave those with you as well.

    He's very sweet and will just lay on my chest.
    He LOVES peas.

    I just want him to have a good life.

    I can post pictures to anyone who is serious!

    Sorry to hear of your situation… Gosh poor thing.. I wouldn't have any suggestions of what to do with him either. Hope someone can help you out!

    Could this duckling live with my hens once it's old enough? I'd like to help, but want to make sure I can provide a fit home for him/her. I'm in the South Fort Worth area with a couple of acres and a pond. I also have a predator proof area the bird could retreat to.

    I've had ducks settle perfectly with hens before, sounds like Jess-A-Chick-A is a perfect match!!
