    There is a local pond by were I live in melbourne, fl where people dump demestic ducks. Me and my girlfriend go there as often as we can to check on the ducks and patch up any that need patching up. One of the ducks is an older drake pekin. He is extremely friendly which makes me think he was dropped off at an older age. He is slightly pidgeon toed which over the years has given him some arthritus so he limps. His feathers are ragged.

    We help him out as much as we can but he really needs a good perminate home. He is not agressive at all towards other ducks and his breeding days are over so he won't hassle your girls. He just needs a good place to retire. If you could help out please let me know.

    I am wondering if the Buy Sell Trade forum might be a place to mention this. It's not exactly that, but it might be where someone looking for a duck might look . . . Just thinkin'

    Thanks for bringing up this guy's situation. Gee, I hope someone in the area comes through.

    Dukz, did you catch him, or is he at the park still? If at the park then you need to talk to parks and rec about catching and rehoming him.

    There are 2 rescues I know of that you could take him to. One in St. Pete and another in Tampa. Both would find him a great home and I have delt with both before.
