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
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.
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).
