    My family and I are moving to central Oregon in a few weeks[​IMG]

    - and we can't have the ducks with us. They are such sweet girls that this breaks my heart but I don't think they'd enjoy the cold and dry very much anyway. Hatched July 17th, 2011 and raised with a lot of human touch/contact. Stella (the Rouen) is more outgoing and curious, Emmy (the Silver Swedish) is more reserved with humans but also will do anything for any kind of food - Stella is more discerning :) When you just lay in the grass they love to come nibble and sit on you. Neither particularly enjoys being held though. Stella is still laying daily from March until end of September, Emmy only lays rarely. Both just love, love, love being out in the rain hunting for slugs and snails and are at their happiest with a fresh pond of water.
    I need them to find a home with secure night time housing and ideally with someone who would appreciate their personalities.

    Hello and good day to you. You're girls are beautiful. I would love to take them but I'm located in North west Indiana. I have never seen a silver Swedish, I have black Swedish myself (Tom, my male & his 3 females).

    If you don't find another home for them, I can take them. We have acreage between Tacoma and Olympia WA. They would share a 40'x 90'pond with 20 other ducks. There's a chicken coop with closed doors dusk to dawn if they want to share with the chickens. They would free range in about 6acres of firs and native plants ( and what's left of the garden), all enclosed in a mesh electric fence. We have pellets and.mixed grains always available but this time of year grasshoppers and seeds and berries are abundant. They can hang out with us outside and we'll hand feed treats but it seems like new adoptees quickly choose.to just tolerate us and prefer birds of a feather. Maybe we could meet somewhere between Portland and Olympia??
