    Due to a coming move "to the city", we need to sell all of our birds. We really hate to do this and we've tried very hard to hold out and hope for the situation to change, but it's just not going to happen. Therefore, they will all need to find new homes. They are NOT $1. I'm taking offers on groups or individuals.

    Ancona Ducks
    -around 50 total available, from 2 day olds to 3 years old
    -Every color imaginable, even a tricolored duck.
    - Several are "show quality" (they aren't APA-approved so it's not actual show quality, but they are very, very nice birds)

    American Geese
    - 2 adults, one blue gander/one lavender goose
    - 1 young lavender baby
    - 4 new babies (mixed color pairs) just purchased from Holderreads

    Cotton Patch Geese
    - These need to go to someone special. It was a very rare opportunity that we had to obtain them and we want them in the best of hands. They carry the saddleback gene and have produced some babies with the pattern.
    - 1 gander, 3 geese adults
    - 5 eggs that should hatch in the next week or so.
    - 10 possibly on the way from FlipFlop, not sure if I can/will turn them down or not.

    The geese need to bought in pairs, but the ducks doesn't necessarily need to be. We keep a ratio of 3-4 hens per drake, so we'd prefer you buy in that ratio too. We are located in Decatur, AL near I-65. For a large enough purchase, we will travel to put them in new homes. Thank you all for your consideration!

    This is really sad! I would cry if I had to sell all my birds!

    I hope you find someone to give them new homes! [​IMG]

    I'm really sorry you need to give up your flock. If we weren't expecting our first baby any day now (the non feathered kind [​IMG]), I would gladly give your geese a great home. Best of luck with finding them good homes and I hope your move goes well.

    I have been looking for American Geese. Are you willing to ship? Also looking to see if I can have a friend transport.
