    Did you get them from a private breeder or sylvan heights?
    Are you in the states?

    They sure look nice! Good luck breeding them. May I ask, about how much do they cost in south Africa?

    11 days ago you posted that you got your first pair of wood ducks- now you want harlequins and pygmy geese??? That's like going from a tricycle to a Harley. Why not see how you do with those wood ducks of yours before you start thinking big. We all have aspirations but come on...

    Dr.todd I don't think you understand I do like harlequins and the pygmys but I never said I wanted them. Yes I would like to get them one day but that will be several years from now. I'm really just learning about all the different ducks out there. I'm actually only 14 and I want to be a vet one day and even possibly a ornithologist. Right know I'm building a rather large aviary for many exotic ducks but I'm only starting with the easy one like woodies mandarins red heads and possibly some hooded mergansers(only because I'm stocking the pond with feeder gold fish and mosquito fish cus ik they love those)
