    I live in Willis, TX and I was asked by my neighbor to take two little ducks because their kids were afraid of them. I have 2 acres with a pond but no fence. One duck was just killed by a stray dog. I now have 25 duck eggs and a depressed and confused duck. Any advice on re homing the surviving duck would be appreciated!

    @Magnolia Ducks @Texas Kiki @Texag87 Welcome to BYC! I don't know if where you live is near these members but it sounds like you've got female ducks and they might be willing to take them. What breed are they?

    I think 6 months? Willis is between Conroe and Huntsville. I have no idea what to do with the eggs.

    I am close to Magnolia. I think it’s a Pekin, male and I have a bunch of eggs...

    welcome to BYC. I am the next closest to you since Huntsville is only 45 miles away and Willis is not that much farther. Unfortunately I just moved and have not built a second coop and pen area. That is in the plans. @Magnolia Ducks could probably use a Pekin for her blue pekin runner project but might not be set up for it yet since she has 7 in the bator right now.

    Use the eggs same as you would a chicken egg. But be careful, you might like them and end up with more ducks not less.

    P.s. they are great for baking

    I need hens but have too many drakes right now. I would come get for my Pekin project if it's a hen but I am trying to find homes for three drakes right now.
