    Hi all,

    I posted over on the free re-homing page but I'm desperate so trying here as well. I found three muscovy's that I think must have been dumped or disliked their old home as they are very people friendly. I had to catch them because they took up residence at our neighbors pond then eventually found their way to his barn and are getting into his horse feed. He is not an animal lover so he was going to shoot them. They also like to hang out at our house which is across a small, but very busy, street from the pond. They were constantly in the way of cars and have almost got hit a number of times. They just don't move for some reason. I absolutely love them- and wish they could have just stayed at the pond-but with the road and the neighbor its' not possible. I don't have the space to keep them-I barely have room for my two (one of whom is permanently injured) and desperately need to find them a home. There is (I think) one male and two females. Poor things are stuck in a small dog run right now (they do have a crate inside). But it's much too small for the three of them. I can't let them out as I don't know they'd let me catch them again. I'm hoping someone will see this and may be able to help. We're in the santa cruz area of California. I'll try on the location thread too. Thanks!
