    I have 7 young rouen ducklings available. 5 are about 3 weeks old, 2 males and 3 females. The other 2 are about 2 weeks old (unsure of sexes). These are still being brooded indoors, they don't have very many feathers yet. Pick-up preferred. Price is per bird. Pics tomorrow.

    ETA: I also have an older special needs crested duckling. She is about 5-6 weeks old and completely blind (one of the downsides of breeding crested ducks). She is also inside with her brooder-mates, I'm afraid to move her outside. Right now she knows where her food and water is, if it gets moved the others 'show' her where it is. But I'm afraid she won't be able to 'find' the heat if I move her outside right now.
    She would have to be kept in a secure pen with a buddy or two. She is free to a good pet home. The blindness is not hereditary, but it is a possible side effect of the crested gene. She should start laying eggs this spring.

    I would love to buy 2 of them (2 week olds or 3 week olds- 2F or 1F1M) but live in CA. Is shipping possible and safe if older than a day? (I haven't bought shipped older ones)

    If they are older than 1 day they have to be at least 6 weeks old before they can be shipped. They'll be pretty good-sized by then, I'm not sure what the shipping would be on that.

    Please let me know if you hatch any more rouen ducks. If you do, I would like to buy them as day olds, if you're willing to ship. I would love to have some rouen or cayuga ducks as pets [​IMG] Thank you for the shipping info. as well.

    They might be, but probably not. I had a duck and drake not related to his and mixed them all up when I hatched some from mine and the ones from him. So I don't know if the ones I have now (1 drake, 3 ducks) are from his or mine. One of the ducks is the same duck I had last year and I assume she is the layer. But it's hard to say for sure if the drake is from his eggs or my own.
