Hi! These are my female mallard ducks... Quackers and Lucky. They are about 1 year old. My son got them when they were babies and we raised them. On Christmas day Quackers laid her first egg!! They try to hatch their eggs, but of course they won't hatch... there's no male. This is their cage for night time and when we're away: During the winter we filled their pool and the floor of the cage with straw, and put tarps around 3 sides of the cage. We used a heat lamp to keep them warm during the freezing temperatures we get in Ohio. I worry about them so much. They are pets.... and if they fly away, I don't think they could survive. I don't clip their wings because when they're out of the cage, they would need to get away from predators (my dog, my cats, hawks, racoons, etc). One night last fall they flew out of our yard and I thought they were gone. Worried me so, but they returned the next morning. I've thought about trying to find them a different home... one where there are other ducks and maybe they can learn to protect themselves and fly south during the winter. I'm afraid to post an add on Craigslist or a place like that, because I don't know who might respond and maybe eat them or something. Maybe someone here can give me advise? Is there a thread for selling ducks?
