if not ~ lower the price after a week, it also depends on how fast you are wanting to move them. How many are you selling again & the sexes? I know you posted pics a couple pages back, will have to go back & take a peek. I would be interested in the girls maybe??
I have a buyer coming over to buy a flock of my ancona ducklings around 6pm today ! She said she wants around 6, but we shall see ~ we all know how Craiglist flakes are
Hey Jaz, are you going to be hatching your own eggs or something? You just sold me 2 girls a few weeks ago!

Yay for eggs! I thought $25 wounded fair, too, but it seems like a lot of people want ducklings...

Those pictures are adorable! Nice goose.

I'm pretty good, thanks. How are you?
By the way, not that we are in the rescue biz... but someone dumped a cat on our property last fall. We have fed her all winter, but could not catch her. Hubby named her Ninja. Well, Ninja had four kittens about 7 weeks ago. So, we got them established on a feed routine/location with canned food and then trapped them all this weekend. We found a home for one kitten, hope to rehome two kittens (but most likely will simply get them fixed and turn them back out onto horse property), but will keep Ninja and one kitten. Here is Ninja, our newest family member.
Pretty kitty! She looks pretty calm for having been running wild for awhile. Do you think she was someone's pet before she was abandoned?
I've heard mixed things about feeding raw egg to dogs. There's an enzyme in raw egg whites that blocks the absorption of biotin. I'm not sure how much they would have to eat to create a biotin deficiency, especially since eggs yolks are high in biotin (I think).
My dogs steal raw ducks eggs and eat them without any apparent side effects, but it's not on a daily basis. I wouldn't feed raw eggs every day, unless I was going to just feed the yolk (which has most of the nutrients in it anyway). Usually I feed extra eggs to the dogs on the weekends when I have time to lightly scramble the eggs or fry them over-easy, just to be safe. Everyone does what works best for them, though.

You're going to end up with a pet squirrel.
