    My female Aussie Spot ducks have laid >50 eggs already this Spring (I have shipped some out to ducklover1, borncountry419, and poultrypeeps so far this Spring) and are still laying about 3-4/day. I'll send 12 (+ free extras) for $20 + $15 for shipping to anyone in the 48 lower United States. My Mama duck hatched 8 babies last Spring and some BYC members have had some hatch from her eggs too. The eggs I ship will be collected daily for almost a week, then I'll bubble wrap each egg and I should be able to ship out the same day or day after Paypal payment ($35) to [email protected] is rec'd.
    Thanks- and I've got more pics if you want to see....the original parents are Blueheads, so the babies are ending up all 3 colors I think.
    Thanks
    Lisa

    PS-These are small ducks...just a bit larger than Mandarin Ducks...
    I hatched my original pair from eggs I got from Asher (here on BYC)

    anyone? I've got enough eggs today to send out 2 batches probably! I'd ship them today if if anyone else wants to try hatching Aussie Spot ducklings and buys them today.

    why don't you try putting them on the 24 hour auction? See what people will pay for them and go from there?

    They are a little bit larger then good calls. I have seen a lot of pics that people think they have purchased calls, and they are actually as. Bonus is they aren't as loud as calls.

    They are really great little ducks, I had a quad from holderaads (sp?), I loved them, but I had a fox issue I sadly lost them to. I will get some more, need to plug the bator in and make sure it works. Just didn't want to pay 35 wo checking.

    Once you know the bator working, just let me know. [​IMG] They are laying loads of eggs and I'm taking them all. I do not want more to hatch this year- Only Mandarins and Sebbies are allowed to go broody and hatch as many babies as they can this year. So- to answer the questions- they are small, but a tad larger than Calls/Mandies. They're quiet, but the girls do quack-quack when they want their food! So cute!
    I've been able to ship 18 eggs in a flat rate box so far without any breaking. I'll continue to do that as long as people buy them. If anyone wants more, I can do that (and adjust the price) but will probably have to put them in a regular large Priority box and charge actual shipping for them.

    Edited to add: This auction is ending in 10 hours and I think I hit my limit of 5 for the past 30 days. I have to look into how to be able to have more than 5/30 days....but if anyone does want 12+ of the newest eggs laid, just PM me. I'll get another auction going as soon as I can....thanks-Lisa
