    Hello everyone, unfortunately I am not able to keep my 2 pet pekin ducks, Penny and Phil. They were born last march. Penny is an excellent egg layer and they are such great pets, and they are friendly. Quite the entertaining pair. I have called a few petting zoos in the area and they do not want them at this time. Any suggestions? I am in located southeastern WI.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    I'm sorry to hear that you have to re-home your ducks! I'd try asking on the Wisconsin thread to see if anyone nearby wants them: Wisconsin "Cheeseheads"

    Once you have 20 posts, you can also post in the Buy-Sell-Trade section of these forums: Buy ~ Sell ~ Trade. Somebody else may be looking for some Pekins.

    Good luck! I hope you can find them a good home.
