That are gorgeous! Are considering bringing them home?
My family saw the drakes above at a local garden with an extensive waterway and a wide variety of wild waterfowl. I think the first one is a Cayuga drake, but not sure about the other two. Thoughts?
I'd love to, but I'm not sure we have enough space to take three drakes. The one that looks like a Cayuga is very tempting, though.
If we had enough land, I'd love to open a rescue called "Lost Boys Duck Rescue." It'd specialize in rescuing dumped and unwanted domestic drakes.
Nope not Cayuga they are black with green iridescent green on the feathers. The lower two not sure but the one on the left may not even be a drake. I think maybe mixes
Yep, probably just mixes. The one on the right in the second photo might be a pure Mallard or Rouen.
Yes, the one on the right in the second photo is a pure Mallard. I was just trying to show the size comparison.
They are lovely ducks So sad when they get dumped like garbage.
I am very surprised by how many people think domestic ducks can fly. Even people who were raised on a farm think all domestic ducks fly. So dropping them off with wild ducks they should just fly away, Right?
Think I saw a Rouen drake the other day in a waterlogged field but by the time I was able to get back to look for it he was gone. Was way too big to be a mallard.
Do you guys think I should try finding a local rescue organization to catch them? As much as I'd love to expand our flock, we just can't take in any new ducks at the moment.
Likewise, the gardens they're at is HUGE, with a lot of connecting waterways, so catching them would definitely require a professional (not to mention someone with authority to convince the staff/volunteers/visitors that these ducks need to be "saved.") This place looks like a duck/goose haven, so most people will have a hard time understanding why domestic fowl shouldn't be there.
