Hi, this is a total shot in the dark, but I'll ask anyway. An old friend of mine, actually she is a former boss lives in Lakeland Florida. Her name is Nancy. She and her hubby retired there a couple years ago. There is a pond in the community where they live. I imagine all the homes are up against the pond so it's right out their back door. So I got an e-mail from her today telling me that there was a pair of muscovies that came to their house every evening to visit. 2 days ago the female was killed. She says that the male is heartbroken and none of the other ducks socialize with this Muscovy. I know this may be foolish, but I know her heart is in the right place. She has been trying to find another Muscovy for him. She told me that she called a hatcheries, but all they offer is babies. She doesn't want to get into brooding babies or anything like that. They are an older couple and I just think it might be too much for her. So I am seeking someone in her area who might have 1 or 2 available. Is this just a bad idea? Any advice would be welcome. I will be glad to pass it on to her. Oh, and I did explain to her that if they aren't kept in a pen or duck house at night they are prime targets for predators. Thanks!!! Oh and here are pictures she sent me. They were named Oscar and Gretchen.
