Good day Oz.
If I can get the buyer to keep me posted, we might see these grow. She's picking them up this evening, along with 4 of the bantams from my last hatch.

Congrats on the new ducks!
I love the wildlife babies that appear every spring. We have a pair of ducks that have nested on our pond for the last three years running -- just waiting for this year's babies to show up following mama duck around.
Beautiful photos of a beautiful girl!
My kind of royalty!
Outstanding -- it is sad to see that so many outlets like that can't/won't take non-commercial goods. I get it, the whole food safety thing, but it is frustrating as heck to have good, perfectly useable food that could go to hungry folks and not be able to go that route to get it to them. Our local one can't distribute them themselves, but do have my name/number and have contacted me from time to time about a family in need, etc - and I also watch the local B/S/T page as a lot of times folks will post there in need of help and I'll offer up some eggs. For the most part I don't have an excess anymore, though, as on top of my regular customers I have DD and her fiance who come down a couple times a month to pick up eggs (her fiance had never had "real eggs" before he met her, he is HOOKED!) and I use gift eggs as a thank you for my neighbors who have welcomed our girls with open arms.
Enablers! My sister-in-law started us out the same way!

I had 2 persimmon plants that I had basically given up on, but kept watering the dirt anyway. Noticed this a couple of days ago, its sprouting!
