    Looking to rehome my 6 month old Muscovy Drake. He was a rescue duckling and we raised him from 4 days old. However he has become more aggressive in his hormonal state, and we dont have the amount of females he needs to calm down so he is acting out. With having two young daughters I unfortunately cant have that, they love our ducks and I dont want them to get scared or injured by him. Hoping to find someone who has female muscovies for him to mate with. I cant house any more ducks (others have offered to sell me females), currently have a good size flock for us.

    i have a female pekin, female swedish and female rouen. My males are male swedish who claimed the other three and my male muscovy. We got him at 4 days old as a rescue so did not know what gender till he got older. A good ratio is a 3 females to 1 male.

    I am sorry for the late post, i have been sick and slammed work wise. I actually found him a home in Lake county and the person already picked him up. Thank you for the offer in him though.
