Silkie Ducks

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Does anyone on here have them? I really want to get some of these little guys. I think they're absolutely gorgeous! Where did you get yours and are they as difficult to hatch out as call ducks? I'd also love to see pics if anyone has any! Thx big_smile

That's where I first saw them but the fewest they'll ship is 10 and if my DH comes home and finds 10 new ducklings he's gonna have a stroke!

They also sell adults too though they might be a little too expensive if you live far away.

I want babies because I want them for pets not breeding so I want them to be used to being handled (and by handled I mean hugged and kissed and snuggled!)
