    HI, I have three 3 year old hens that need to find a new home. They are free range, healthy and still lay...although not as much as last year. I purchased six from the 4 H-ers at the county fair and three have met their fate with some raccoons last summer. I may add that the raccoons met their fate as well that week!!!

    Additionally, I have three 2 week old Pekin ducklings (Born March 8th) that I would like to rehome. I have 5 and it is just too many.

    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
