Billy & Bella were exposed to starvation and extreme temperatures before coming to Majestic.

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!

These are very interactive and friendly ducks!

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! Bella is a lot smaller and a little more shy, but will allow lots of snuggling!

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 & Bella 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).

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!

Dolly was found abandoned on a pond. When she first arrived she was emaciated and her feathers had lost their waterproof effectiveness.

Within a few weeks of joining our flock of rescues, Dolly blossomed into her true beautiful self. She is a little shy, but comes up pretty close for her treats. Recently, Dolly has taken a special liking to little Miracle. The two make an adorable pair!
