We love animals. I have lots of chickens. But we have been invaded by unwanted ducks. New neighbors moved in several years ago with ducks. They flew over the fence to my property next door and started having ducklings. There's nothing cuter than a bunch of ducklings! But now there's about 40 huge ducks and they have flown over into MY yard and are raising the next generation. The water is muddy, my car is poopy, they fly onto the rooftop, the feed bill is very high. I try to find the nests when the eggs are fresh, but they hide them and the next thing, here come more adorable babies that are huge in a year. The worst part is that my lawns are totally gone, yep, bare ground where there used to be grass. Parks won't accept them; we've tried. My feedstore always has plenty of its own from the hatchery. The final obstacle is that my husband has emphatically decreed that no ducks may be given away if it is to be killed and eaten. So, can anyone give me advice on a source that will take these off my hands? I live in Houston. Craigslist, maybe? These males are huge and are not easy to handle when caught. I'm not sure of the breed; they are white or black and white, some red on the bill like a Muscovy, but the main thing is that they don't quack, they sort of hiss except a female will chirp for her ducklings. If someone wants free ducks, how do we catch them? Best at night? I've tried to get my husband to agree to only keep the females, but he has his "favorite" males, and this Spring's eggs will already be fertile. Any advice is welcome.
