You also have to have the federal permit (not just the 3-186) to sell, give away, or otherwise rehome/dispose of any migratory listed bird such as the wood ducks, teals, mallards, ect.
I know you want everyone to understand you wish to provide the best for the birds, but the constant posting of your financial commitment isn't needed. Everyone who raises birds is well aware of the costs, and not impressed by someone's claims of financial out put.
Money doesn't make a good owner, reading, asking questions, and educating ones self on the wide variety of needs is much better. Not all birds share similar diets, migratory birds are a commitment to proper housing, permits, and dietary needs. Not all migratory birds are for first time owners (newbies).
So the short of the long is:
To own migratory ducks in Ohio,
- you buy from someone federally licensed
- you get the 3-186 form from the seller
- you get your Ohio permit to keep the migratory birds
To sell, rehome, or give away any migratory birds you:
- Have your Ohio permit
- have you 3-186 forms from where you bought your stock
- you apply for your own federal permit which allows you to sell/rehome/give away migratory birds.
No mandarins are not listed on the federal migratory list, SOME, not all states still require you have a permit to keep them though. When in doubt call your states fish and game department (or what ever they are called) to clarify what they require from you to be in compliance.
Some states have housing requirements as well, it always best to comply, then to risk fines and loosing the birds because you failed to follow the guidelines.
