These four gorgeous boys currently live on a property in Mariginiup, where they were born and raised. Regretfully their owner needs to rehome them as they are giving their female counterparts a bit of a hard time.
Ducks can be quite aggressive when it comes to mating, so the drakes will need to be homed where they cannot physically be in contact with female ducks. Despite this behaviour, they are placid and non aggressive toward humans, preferring the company of their own kind.
The drakes will be treated for parasites before handover to their new family and an adoption fee of $20 per duck applies.
QUICK REFERENCE LIST:
AGE: 6 – 12 months
TEMPERAMENT: Placid (when away from females), preferring the company of each other.
SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS: Male ducks (drakes) need to be homed away from females to avoid aggressive mating behaviour. Alternatively a single male can be housed with multiple females (at least 4 ducks) however these drakes are not intended for breeding, so egg collection is a must.
Ducks need secure housing at night that protects them from the elements and predators such as dogs and foxes.
ADOPTION FEE: $20 each

* Animal Actionist promotes non breeding of all rescued animals, particularly in the interest of breaking the cycle of unwanted farm animals (most of them males,) that find themselves with little time to find a new home and end up in danger of slaughter. All farm animals adopted via Animal Actionist are intended as family pets, and therefore the same rules that apply for non breeding of cats and dogs, applies to these animals too. If you apply to adopt you thereby agree and are bound to not use this animal for breeding.
All suitable applications are forwarded to the current custodian for consideration, and you will be contacted as soon as possible to discuss your offer further. Please understand that it may take a few days for us to respond to you depending on the amount of applications received, and it is never a case of first come, first served with animal adoptions, as we have to do our best to locate the absolute best homes for the animals. If you have any problems or further queries, please contact Animal Actionist direct via the “contact us” link. Thank you so much for caring for animals.
