If I have posted this in the wrong place, please let me know!
I have a bonded set of 3 muscovies - one male and 2 females. The females are 1 and 2 years old and the male is a year old. The girls are champion layers (as evidenced by my constant nest disruption to keep them from hatching out babies again!) and the male is the sweetest boy imaginable.
We are just taking our farm in another direction and the muscovies are not going to fit into the farm plan, anymore. In fact, they have been a bit more of a hassle than a help with how our land and growing area is laid out. I'd like to find a good permie home for them where they can be integrated into the landscape and used in a way that is holistic, kind and caring (read: not eaten). I don't want any money for them. I just want them to go to a good home. I am willing to meet someone halfway if you are coming from Oregon or Eastern Wa.
You can send me a message if you think they would work out well in your area.
Thanks for reading - hope you are all staying safe!
If this was next year I'd totally take them. But I'm not really ready for ducks yet though. Needing to finish work on the turkey area, and get fencing up for sheep. I've got a small divot I discovered (a little larger than a typical kid pool from the hardware store, possibly from an uprooted tree) that regularly holds water that would be a perfect place to set them up.
I have 4 but they are old and in retirement. I like the eggs over chicken but, alas, those days are apparently over, unless I have your group join me on my South Whidbey homestead. firstname.lastname@example.org
