    Hi. We are Shannon & Wendy J. :)
    Our kids are either furry or feathered, sometimes both depending on play time that day :D
    We live south-western Kentucky, near TVA, Kentucky Lakes & Tennessee.
    We have a small flock of Pekin ducks. :jumpy
    Our oldest drake, TooShort, dominates our 7 bulldogs with his bold personality! These 80+ lb bullies tuck their tails and run when he gives chase!

    We plan to add some chickens to the family this spring.

    Mostly, we are here for suggestions, medical help & remedies.

    Finding it hard to locate new ducks when needed, and we don't know any locals who raise ducks.

    Thanks for all the posts and suggestions we have read so far. :thumbsup

    Right now, we are in desperate need of a few more female ducks, as our males are now outnumbering the females.... and it is causing aggression:he, fights and a couple of sad, wounded boy ducks without mates!!
    --We would take in or buy any type of female ducks, from one or two to a few. Once our #s are rounded out, we won't mind taking in orphaned ducks needing homes in the midwest, within an hour or so of us here @ ZIP code = 42071.--
    Thanks!! SJ + WJ

    Hello! Welcome to BYC!! :frow

    I had too many drakes so one point, too... And I grew to dislike them because of their wicked mating skills:barnie. Loved my muscovies, though!

    Feel free to check out the links below for some interesting reading. Good luck to you!

    Hi Shannon and welcome to BYC. Good luck in finding your ducks.

    This is a useful link of BYC guides to take a look at announcements-feedback-issues-guides.3 I’d suggest including your location using the guide in the link. You can use this link to contact members in your area - Find your State's thread.

    Best wishes
