Seven 4-5 week old Pekin ducklings need a new home! We have way too many to keep them all sadly :(

    Our Pekin Ducks are free ranged and feed with all organic foods, so there is nothing "unnatural" about these little cuties! We also have free range chickens of all different breeds that interact with the ducks from time to time. We already have 20 full grown Pekins, so having another 7 live with us would become just too much for our property we have. We are hoping they go to a loving home that will raise them right and give them lots of love and care :)

    We are located in Berks County, PA. 25 min north of Reading! If you are serious about adopting them we will give you our number and go from there! Thank you
    P.S. The 1st pic is what they look like now, the 2nd is when they were a week old, and the 3rd is what they will look like full grown.

    good morning! very glad to see this post. Our son has wanted ducks for a while now and my wife and i were discussing trying to get him some for christmas. unfortunately, seven ducks would probably be a bit much for him, however if you are willing to part with two of them we can make arrangements and i can come pick them up. we live in NJ. thanks !!

    Hi, I am writing to see if you would want to get rid of any of your adult Pekin hens? I am copying and pasting my reply to Pekin adoptions, so please don't think I didn't see you say you got rid of your ducklings, I just thought it wouldn't hurt to ask since I am looking everywhere for hens for our spring season. I am not cheap, just financially stretched this year. I treat my pets and ducks better than some family members and believe that my permanent home is paradise to our farm animals. Even if you guys would not be interested, would you send my "wanted Pekin" info to anyone that would want a great home for their birds?

    Hi there! I am desperate need of Pekin hens this spring! My flock is split in half with 5 being Pekins. Over the fall, I lost a couple of hens to a 50 pound snapping turtle in our pond. Thankfully, we caught and killed the sucker after I had to save a fawn runner from being taken under. (His name is Lucky) We have a huge pond that is about 2 acres in length, and for now, is without snapping turtles. I am raising fawn runners, blue, black and silver swedes and Pekins this yr. Hopefully we will be adding 2 saxony ducks to our family by summertime....depends if I go crazy just trying to keep everyone in their own pen at night for breeding. Anyways, my ducks live in paradise in southwest va. I need Pekin hens so bad because I have 3 drakes to 2 hens. Last yr there were only 2 drakes to 5 and I sometimes I had to seperate some of the ladies to take a break for a few days. Those guys are rough on them. I want to breed and sell, but refuse to watch my hens get beat up over the first few months of spring! My only solution is more hens for this season, but I need to adopt ones of laying age. And I can't afford to pay adult prices for multiples this month. I can assure you that your ducks will always be pets and never eaten. I promise they will get the best food, attention and health care. On my farm, the animals are like my children. I assure you they will be together always. I promise they will always be free range w/shelter. I promise I will NEVER make them live in a pen for every hour of their days. They will ALWAYS have tons of friends on a huge pond until they pass. All the ducks get treats, inspections, shelters, emergency care, fish, snails, slugs, pond scum, water critters, and even lots of love from (gentle) local kids that come by the farm to learn or to get photographed by me during the spring. (I am also a photographer) Easter portraits are how I started raising ducks in the first place :) Please let me know if you still have the Pekin hens as we NEED them soon!! My email is [email protected]
    Thanks for your time,
    Sarah
