Reposting because I initially put this in the Chickens for sale board :-)19

Hi, we have a pair of female Indian Runner Ducks which, due to neighbour complaints, we unfortunately have to rehome.

They're about two years old, we've had them from babies. One has a gammy leg (has done from a chick) which doesn't stop her getting about, she just doesn't run much for a runner duck! Both are good layers.

We're very keen that they go to someone who has experience looking after waterfowl, ideally someone with a bit of space and a pond and maybe other ducks - basically we want them to have at least as good or even better life than they already have with us.

We're in Dorset, but will travel to get them to someone who can provide them with a good home.

Hope someone can help.

Thanks for posting! I hope you find them a wonderful home :) pictures are always great to see! What a shame
Your neighbours are not duck friendly.... maybe you should rehome the neighbours!

Hi, did you find a taker for your ducks?
We are in Swansea and I think the journey would be too stressful for them, but my sister in law is in Dorset so I could ask her if she knows of anyone.
