    DH & I are no longer able to keep the call ducks we hatched last year. They were all from show breeders.

    We have 4 silver appleyard ducks (1 male/3 female) and 2 white pet-quality male calls from Wapsiwaterfowl stock. (see pictures at http://www.wapsiwaterfowl.com/silver_appleyard.htm) They are also breeding - right now about 6 eggs a week. These six were hatched out together and are a tight-knit flock, so we would really love it if someone could take all six together.

    We also have two beautiful female ducks hatched from Wonderswaterfowl stock. (Their website is http://www.wonderswaterfowl.com/2.html). One is a white call & one is black (she was supposed to be chocolate, but her coloring is off) . These two are my babies. They are the only two that hatched out of the dozen I ordered, and have been handled quite a bit. I really hate to say goodbye to them and want to make sure they go to a really good home that will keep them together.

    We live in Indianapolis Indiana, on the westside. We really want to find a special home for these beloved pets. we can deliver the ducks within a range of 75 miles or so.

    :jumpyHi.
    Just moved to Batesville this summer and we were thinking of adding ducks to our flock. Our chickens free range all day and are in the barn at night. Would love to chat with you.

    Here are photos for those who are interested in our ducks. One thing I forgot to mention before is that the two females are kept seperate from the other six (they are smaller and get picked on quite a bit). So we would like them to go to seperate homes if possible.

    Here are the two little females, Alph-alfa and Buckwheat

    Here are some better pics of Buckwheat (the coloring is not right--she was supposed to be chocolate)

    Thanks to everyone who has expressed an interest in our little ducks. I am trying to respond to everyone, but I have been really busy with work so it may take me awhile. If you have emailed or pmed me & I haven't gotten back to you yet, I ask that you please be patient with me--I will as soon as I can.

    I'm so sorry I did not see this post earlier!
    I was to travel to Kentucky for call ducks this weekend and had to cancel. Please put me on your list of adopting parents!
