    Surprise, Surpise...our blue/slate colored hens (2) turned into drakes!!! Acting like all the other males now! We ended up with more drakes than hens!! We love them and want to find someone else who would enjoy them and not eat them! They have a large area to free range and swimn (in our concrete pond - old pool). They come in at night, into the pen and quack shack with very little herding necessary. We have five drakes and would like to find at least three a good home. We live in Baltimore County area. Please offer suggestions if you would. Thank you.

    You can try using Craigslist, Kijiji, or eBay.
    Drakes are very hard to get rid of though, because you need so few.
    You won't just eat them? Or get more ducks?

    Maybe try an animal rescue group or animal sanctuary? That was the only place I could find that would take one of my drakes and not eat him.

    There is a free rehoming forum, and a Where Am I Where Are You forum organized by location so you might find someone nearby.

    There are sometimes animal rescue farms, sometimes vets will help out....
