Hey everyone,
Due to a series of unfortunate circumstances and the general trouble finding housing in Missoula, my girlfriend and I have made the (painful) decision to get rid of our 5 laying ducks. They're between 1-3 years old and still laying well. They're all pretty broody and would probably be great at raising ducklings! They're all pretty much mutts; some magpie, rouen, runner, and mallard, and who knows what else. They're very sweet, and Olivia, the all-white one, is probably one of the sweetest and most intelligent ducks you'll meet!

We're posting on here instead of craigslist because we want our ducks to have a cool and awesome home, like a permie would give them. This is also why we're giving them away. It's actually really sad for us! So we'd really like to see them go to a place with other ducks and people who'll treat them well. We're in Missoula now and are willing to drive somewhere to drop them off. Let us know if you're willing to give them a great home!

Thanks,
Kevin

If I had land and lived close, I would be diving on this! Duck eggs are my idea of the egg gold standard. I hope you have luck finding them a proper home!

Some day, the base camp part of wheaton labs will be ready for ducks! Soon, I hope (a year or so?). Not quite there yet...

Do you still have the ducks? I currently have 3 ducks and 7 geese with room for more. I might be able to take them in, but I live in Southern Minnesota, 16 hours away. Email me. ica.chu@yahoo.com
