They are NOT food, so don't bother me if you plan on eating them. The adoption fee is $3.00 per duck or 4 for $10.00. The Khaki Campbell has it's adult feathers and appears to be a girl, the Pekins still have yellow "fuzz" on them, but it is quickly going away. Please do your research before adopting a duck. Find out what shelter they need, what they eat, etc. Any questions, feel free to email me. No pictures available. They look like typical Pekins and khaki Campbell ducks They are very cute. Pick up on weekend. NY - Troupsburg - Ducks and chickens need homes Posted by: "[email protected]" Thu Aug 21, 2008 6:10 pm (PDT) 20-30 Chickens, One Duck Couple 08/07/2008 Melissa Buffington 327 Schall Road Troupsburg, NY 14885 Phone: 607-525-6512 (Day) Phone: 607-525-6443 (Evening) E-mail: _mabfarmgirl@ aol.com_ (mailto:mabfarmgirl@ aol.com) We are unable to keep up with our 100 acre farm in Troupsburg, and will be moving to Pine City where we will only have about 10 acres. We need to downsize our number of animals significantly because my father is ill and me and my mother both work full time. I do not want to sell my chickens and ducks because I do not want anyone to eat them or mistreat them. I only want a good home for them where they can live out the rest of thier lives happy. The female duck does have a disability from being hit by a car. She gets around but is a little slow. They are both Rouen ducks. The chickens are assorted. Some are regular size and some are bantams. There are also some mixes. I have about 15 baby chicks right now. Some are about a month old and then there are 3 that are only about a week old. An older hen named "the church lady" is caring for them in a proctected pen. She is not fond of people but takes her job as mother hen very seriously. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks. Special Duck Needs New Home 08/13/2008 Snazzy Sebastopol, CA 95472 Phone: 716-688-4638 E-mail: [email protected][email protected] Circle (Zircle) is a blind young duck (less than one year) who needs a new home. He also swims in circles. We are pretty sure that its a male. He needs a home where he is contained because animals like trying to eat him. Lately its getting harder to catch him from the huge pond to lock him up at night, and the predator birds are starting to get too close for comfort. Please, this is a pet, not a meal. Also, it would be nice if you had other friendly ducks. Not sure about the breed, very light brown, but without the dark pinstripes that some of our other ducks have. Needs to go asap please. 16 Beautiful Ducks, Different Breeds 08/05/2008 Sarah Barnett Chantilly, VA Email: _sbarnett05@ gmail.com_ (mailto:%20sbarnett05@ gmail.com) 8 Males, 8 Females These 16 ducks are rescues, and are all in good health.

I am trying to find homes for some orphaned homing pigeons that I temporarily took in when my neighbor passed away. I dont condone the keeping of birds or the racing of pigeons, but recognize that these birds having been hand raised their entire life were not able to fend for themselves when their owner passed away. There are a total of 15 Pigeons; 5 nesting pairs and 5 single males. I am able and willing to help sponsor these birds supporting their food and care expenses. Its important to me that they find a home where they will be cared for, treated kindly, protected from predators such as hawks and not be released to the wild. 5. CA - PAcific Beach - runner duck Posted by: "[email protected]" [email protected] Thu Aug 21, 2008 6:10 pm (PDT) Chevy is a 7 Month Old Field Runner Duck 08/13/2008 Jessica Thorsteinson Pacific Beach, CA 92109 Phone: 740-972-9376 E-mail: _litlmissjess200420 @yahoo.com_ (mailto:litlmissjess200420@ yahoo.com) She is moderately energetic but loves to go for walks or runs with you. She just started flying but doesnt do it unless she has to. I have kept her on a pretty healthy diet of meal worms, crickets, minnows and corn meal. She plays fetch just like a dog and gets along with most household animals like small dogs and cats. She needs someone who will pay attention to her and give her lots of attention. 6. CA - Bishop - 2 turkeys need homes Posted by: "[email protected]" Thu Aug 21, 2008 6:10 pm (PDT) Two friendly Turkeys in Bishop, CA, male, slated for Thanksgiving unless adopted! 07/30/2008 Jynx macTavish Bishop, CA 93514 Phone: 760-387-1026 E-mail: _spriggancat@ gmail.com_ (mailto:spriggancat@ gmail.com) These nice turkeys were foisted on my neighbor when his roommate moved out. He intended to eat them at Thanksgiving, but has run out of patience and offered them to me. I can't keep them, but I hope to find a home for them. They are young (4 months), very friendly, play with the neighbor's dog through the fence, always come over to say hello when anyone stops to see them. They seem very healthy and happy. I may be able to deliver them to you, but if you could come get them, that would be best. Thanks! 7.
