Recently I learned that progress is being made with discouraging people from dumping ducks and ducklings. Kim Link at Majestic Waterfowl has apparently been in contact with Tractor Supply Company about this. She reports that they "will put this signage up where all of their ducklings are sold NATIONWIDE: “NOTE: Most domestic ducks cannot fly or migrate and should never be released into the wild or public areas.” This verbiage will also appear in their care brochures distributed in stores and viewable on their website! AND... They've asked us to write up a little blurb on duckling/duck care as well! Woo hoo!!! Thank you, Tractor Supply for listening, recognizing and responding to help stop the abandonment of ducks!" Let us duck folk continue to write letters to the editor and do what we can to educate and advocate. And if you know someone who succumbed to the cuteness, let's all work to help out with advice or, if needed, rehoming. Before we know it, it will be that season when ducks, rabbits and chicks will be sold. Hard to believe, with some of us in the deep freeze. But it's on its way.
