This is my longest multi-quote to date!
I just learned about this! It's called "pinioning". You break off a piece of the wing when the duckling is under 12 weeks and they will never fly. People are big on doing it to certain breeds. Personally, I would never do it. Just like I'd never clip a dogs ears. But that's just my 2 cents.
Very interesting! I'm not exaggerating but all the ads on my craigslist are like the "bad" ad.
X2! That's what I was going to say!!
Wow! That's a real egg!?! If I had LOTS of time on my hands, I would love to learn to do that. Maybe in 20 years when all my kids are in college. It's truly beautiful!
I would appreciate that. I'll probably pm you when I get ready to do it. Here's the pics he sent me. He was a little flirty, so I should be extra nice!
If I can get them and hatch them, can ducks be shipped? (if you were interested)?
Thanks for posting this. I plan on advertising on CL come spring, so all of this talk and examples has helped me a lot.
If I was a woman on a mission, I bet I could find it in under 30 mins. You have no idea the PI skills women have when they need too!!
I could never have a drake without a mate for it. I'd feel to bad. My neighbor/landlord owns my whole street and he has over a dozen peacocks (what could be louder!) so, if any of my neighbors complained, they'd have to complain to him and I just don't see that happening, I hope!
That was really long! I talked him out of pinioning and into covering the run but i have to give in if thats what He wants to do. I have to hold steady at: to each his own. I never liked the looks of a dogs ears cropped but with some breeds and some doggie jobs i can see it being neccesary. I really really wish i could have my dogs tails done, but thats because im looking at pittbull tails that will leave bruises! Theres a reason for some cropping, like That, and so i just kinda sit back: "to each his own." JMHO
Im glad to be able to help, im really no guru or anything, but i did study marketing 10 yrs ago as well as entrepreneurship and speech. Its helped me alot, i may have stolen a few text books
