A local animal refuge is having a hard time getting its ducks in order, as it is overrun with them.
The Vernon Exotic and Small Animal Rescue is in need of homes for an abundance of Muscovy ducks.
“We rescued a few in the fall and they bred and hatched all their babies this spring,” said Ren Hunt, who cares for abandoned exotic animals with Mitchell Neufeld.
With more than 60 of the ducks to care for, the couple is spending about $10 a day on food and having to change out the water twice a day due to the numbers.
Therefore they are only asking $5 a duck to help recoup some of the costs.
The ducks produce a good amount of eggs for eating and the rescue centre is also willing to sell them for food.
