    Hey, folks, I've got a question: What would you recommend for transporting a duck from Missouri to Washington? We might be moving to WA due to my dad's job situation, and we're not sure what would be best idea for bringing my duck, Eddie along with us. Thanks! [​IMG] Erner

    My guess is a cat crate. But I imagine it also depends on your mode of transport.

    Ahh. We'll be driving (how many cars, I don't know) down to WA, probably taking the slow, scenic route since we might also be bringing four of our sheep and my sister's chicken. [​IMG] Yep. Four sheep in the back of a '90-something suburban. Thank you! I will recommend that to my mother. [​IMG]

    Make sure the crate is tall enough for the duck to stand up straight in. I mean, normal straight-up. Don't know the breed. I use a dog crate with plastic poultry fence lining. We call it The Limousine. It is tall enough for the runners.

    Here are some tips in a newsletter from Majestic Waterfowl.
