    Selling or giving away Ducklings - which one?

    I've thought about this too (very theoretically) and even though I wouldn't really care about how much money I got, I would want the ducks to go to someone who could swing a few bucks for them. I figure the cost of ducklings is pretty small compared to other expenses involved. And responsible...

    If you're OK with a drake I bet there are plenty of legit folks on Craig's List just looking to unload a drake to keep the male:female ration of their flock more harmonious! If you meet the seller in a public place and the duck looks healthy, probably not a big risk. (optimal situation...

    australian spotted ducks....

    someone in the "Where are You/Where am I" Oregon subforum has them I recall. Look there. And I have no idea and ask myself the same. Perhaps they need a better publicist? Or maybe it's just that there aren't a lot of them out there to begin with?

    I just looked up bantam ducks....... Anyone who has, or has had any, please look

    I don't have mini silver appleyards yet, but plan to get them eventually. According to the chart in Storey's the MSAs lay more than the East Indies (50-125 v. 25-75). Both are "excellent" for mothering and foraging abilities. I've searched MSAs and read only good things, they charmed some folks...

    Who watches your ducks when you go out of town?

    Interesting to hear all the experiences. I think we'll probably be able to figure something out.

    The nitty-gritty of ducks

    Interesting, my local store was also suggesting Runners "because you don't have to give them a pool." I guess I would at least offer and see!

    My children are paying attention (sort of)

    This morning my four year old asks: "Can we get a Cinnamon Teal?" (We were at the zoo a couple week ago -- I alway enjoy the native wild waterfowl exhibit.) So explained the difference between wild and domestic breeds. "But I like their green heads!" (um, no ...but that's an easy one!)...

    Sneezing, some coughing- going through the flock

    I'm glad at least the fresh air and/or sunlight is helping! Hope they continue to improve.
