Tell us more about you!

Please use the comments field below to tell us anything else we should know about you and your home. What will adopted life be like with you and your family? Can you describe your daily waterfowl routine? This is your chance to let us know!

Would you like to tell us about any current pet ducks/geese you have already, or have had experience with in the past? Or are you a newbie when it comes to waterfowl, which is fine too! 


We will need to see digital photographs BEFORE we can begin the adoption review process. If you do not have digital photos ready to email immediately after submitting this form, please do not submit this form until you do.

Please be sure your photos are In Focus, Clear and Bright!

When sending us your photos, please input the same full name you listed on your adoption application as the Title of your email. This will enable us to easily match your photos with your Adoption Application.

After submitting this Adoption Application to us, immediately Email us (directorATmajesticwaterfowl.org) your photos using the below list as your guide. Please send photos of any/all of the below that apply to your particular situation:

1)  Predator-Proof Pen:  Stand in the center of your pen and take photos in each direction as you turn, so we can see a full 360 view.

2)  Aviary Netting:  If you have aviary fencing over your pen (which is required for ducks and preferred for geese), please stand outside of your pen and take a side photo of the area, so we can see it.

3)  Close up Fencing:  Take a nice, close-up photo of your fencing. If you have utilized more than one kind in different areas of your pen, or different layering techniques in different areas, please send a photo of each.

4)  Doors & Gates:  Take photos of any pen gates, barn doors (etc). We need to see the complete circumference around all doors to make sure they fit snug within their frames/ fencing.

5)  Night House:  Take photos that show us the inside and outside of their night house, shed, barn, etc.

6)   Friends:  Take a photo of any other pets (we're assuming birds) who will be sharing space with your adopted waterfowl. Group photos are fine!

7)  Optional Extras:  Anything else you want us to see? Feel free to send those along too! 

PLEASE UNDERSTAND... Do to the large number of adoption applications that come through to us without accompanying photos, you will NOT hear back from us until we receive BOTH this online Adoption Applicatoin AND your digital photos.
