Billy was exposed to starvation and extreme temperatures before coming to Majestic. His estimated year of hatching is 2010.

Billy's bill was cut off prior to his being dropped off, putting him at risk of frostbite on his tongue. Unfortunately he arrived with frostbite on his face nodules and on his webbed feet, but he has since made a full recovery!

Billy is a very interactive and friendly duck!

Billy (who is very large) comes up to greet us whenever he hears us in the barn. He loves to have lengthy chats about how grand he is!

Liberty is a black & white Muscovy duck who was found and rescued in a parking lot and brought to our sanctuary in July of 2017. She came to us with poorly clipped wings, and for some odd reason, a clipped tail. While we're unsure of her age, we suspect she was about a year old at the time.

She and Billy will be meeting soon and hopefully forming a love connection. Once they have bonded, we will be ready to adopt them out together!

Liberty is still new and quite shy, but we hope that will change as she becomes comfortable and settles in at our sanctuary.

***IMPORTANT***

About Muscovy ducks: Muscovy ducks make wonderful pets! They tend to be very interactive and even wag their tails when they're happy! Quieter than other ducks, males make a breathy "Huch-uch-cha" sound while females trill & squeak.

Special considerations: While we are interested in finding Billy and Liberty their new and forever home, their new owners MUST have a predator proof pen with constant aviary covering/protection overhead because Muscovy ducks can (and do) fly and escape. Wing clipping is not enough--pens must be 100% secure. We do not want any Muscovy ducks escaping into the wild where they do not belong and are currently being destroyed in many areas.

Additional considerations: Muscovy ducks have facial caruncles, which are very susceptible to cold and frostbite. They need spacious indoor accommodations for freezing weather when they should not be allowed to venture outside for long intervals (short intervals on sunny afternoons is about their limit).

M/F Pair

Available for Adoption!

Hiro (male) and Shiloh (female) were dumped on a river along with two other Pekin ducks. They were rescued and brought to our sanctuary on June 2nd, 2016.

Hiro and Shiloh are very active ducks who are pretty good at getting into trouble, which in duck terms means: they like to make mud pies around their water bucket, dig little holes in the ground with their bills and track muddy footprints in their duck house. What fun!

These are two very good ducks who will come within a few feet of us for treats. Hiro does not get along with other drakes, so it's girls only for him!

Airline Ellie

Duck

Female

Est. Hatch: 6/15/17

NOT AVAILABLE

Descriptors:

Airline Ellie was only 4 weeks old when she was found walking on the Airline Trail. She ran up to a family of bicyclists and asked them for help. Apparently, she asked the right people because they brought her home and took care of her until they found our sanctuary.

Although she arrived with some leg troubles caused by malnutrition, we able to correct them completely by immediately upgrading her diet. Today she is running around wherever she pleases without any difficulty at all.

Airline Ellie was human-imprinted and very friendly. While she was originally up for adoption, we have since paired her up with Eeben (who is retired here). She may just become a Majestic retiree. We'll have to wait and see!
