Kicker: Dating for ducks

MARY REICHARD, HOST: These days, folks look for their forever love on dating apps. But Chris Morris decided to go analog. 

He hand wrote a singles ad seeking a companion and posted it on a bulletin board at a local grocery store. 

And here’s where the story gets even stranger because the headline read “Duck Seeking Duck.”

You see, the problem is there are no dating apps for waterfowl. 

Morris was seeking a companion not for himself, but for his feathered friend named “Yellow Duck” who lost its mate to a predator two weeks ago.

Morris drew a picture of a duck with the heading: “Lonesome runner duck seeks companion—partner recently deceased.” 

The Bangor Daily News reports local farmer Sadie Greene might have just the one to mend Yellow Duck’s broken heart. The two are arranging a meeting for the ducks this week.

Yellow Duck loves eating slugs and Morris said they might be on the menu for the big date.
