I have a young (approx 4 mo old) Cayuga duck that needs to be rehomed. Although we call him a "he", I feel it may be a she. He has no drake feather, but has not started to lay yet. I have had several ducks over my lifetime and had a lovely Cayuga years back. They're known for their quiet and sweet nature. The reason we have to rehome him is that he is in with our chickens (and he is very respectful of them) in our backyard. He's used to being fed and watered every morning and will quack loudly if he sees anyone up during the night or wee hours of the morning. We have a small yard and the homes here are close together. All the neighbors are hearing this, too. He needs to be somewhere where he doesn't have to be in a coop in a small back yard. He's the first duck I have had that does this and we are all sad to be giving him up, but in an effort to remain on good terms with our neighbors, we need to find him a new home. He's in excellent health and eats fresh fruits and veggies in addition to his regular feed and other goodies. His name is Pato (after the kids cartoon duck). If I could leave him out of the coop with his kiddie pool of water, I think he'd be fine, but we have a small yard with our own dogs that would eat him and many predators that frequent the neighborhood. Because he is so vocal, my feeling is that he is a she,we're just waiting for the eggs to be sure.
We are located in Pleasant Hill, near Walnut Creek/Concord. Please, if you know of anyone who would like to give our duck a good home, please let us know.
