Little Duck Boy

Malverne, NY - Introducing Little Duck Boy! Little Duck Boy, also known as LDB, is a Crested Snowy Call Duck who was found abandoned on Long Island. LDB had a cracked bill and very long nails when we found him, indicating he was likely kept in a wire cage before we rescued him. (Call ducks were originally bred to be tiny enough to fit in cages duck hunters would cruelly carry to attract wild ducks to shoot when the call ducks called out for help.). Little Duck Boy gets his name because of his miniature stature but he is very bold with a huge personality. LDB is good with adults and children alike, even enjoying perching on heads and shoulders. LDB is capable of flight but prefers not to walk and swim instead. Please consider opening your heart to him, and providing him a happy, no-kill, forever home he deserves!
*If you adopt him, please let Adopt a Bird Network know!
*Birds cannot be shipped, they must be adopted in person.
*Since ducks have an excessive number of wild and domestic animals who want to eat them, it is your responsibility to protect them.
