yes i get it, huge commitment but i have been doing livestock, farm and ag for better part of 18 years now, i know the commitment and if she doesn't want them any more then they will become my new pets.
Thanks again every one :)
Careful with runners, they're total hams and you'll laugh every time you look at them, but they are typically very skittish. With lots of care and attention they can be super friendly birbs, but it doesn't come nearly as easily like it does with Cayugas, Calls and Pekins. Cayugas are pretty mellow, and Pekins can be sweet, gigantic couch potatoes.
Please accept our apologies for jumping to conclusions, you'd be amazed at the amount of new users we see who don't know thing one about ducks yet adamantly insist they can care for them, and the poor birbs suffer for it. We're all duck obsessed here so we only want the very best for our little webfeets!
