Hello, my name is Shay and I have a duck. As far as I know he is the most amazing duck on the planet. He is 7 months old and I have had him since he was 3 days old. Someone gave him to us at a party and I live in central London, so he lives in my room (with daily two hour walks and a massive paddling pool in the back garden). The problem is, I'm a student in London and I took time off for financial reasons, I was denied re-entry to the country after a short trip. It shouldn't have happened as I didn't do anything wrong, but it did and now my boyfriend is trying to work full-time and care for a duck (which is a big responsibility) and help me sort out my visa issues. I'm worried my duck is getting lonely and I'm afraid he'll become depressed. I thought he could come back to California with me, but there's no way he'd be happy with a month in quarantine, during which time I can't even visit him. I'm willing to pay for food and board (and anything else that comes up, like vet bills) if anyone would be willing to take my duck until May or June, which is the earliest we think I'll be able to return. Like I said, he's 7 months old, he hasn't shown any signs of ill health. He's unbelievable friendly with people and just incredibly sweet and funny. I think he'll be fine with a couple of other ducks, I used to walk him with a man who had two drakes himself and they got on alright. I can pay board, whatever is suggested as a fair price. I basically just need to know my pet is in a good environment, as he is pretty much my baby. If anyone in southern England could possibly help I would be so, so grateful. My email is [email protected] and you can email anytime. Thank you.
