    Our three hens are very lonely and would like a drake to keep them company. Would travel up to an hour from zip code 24202.

    Thanks!

    Ive never had full size birds shipped. Any guestimate on the fee for such a service [​IMG]. Do they travel well?

    My hens are Black Swede x Pekin, Pekin, Blue Swede x Pekin

    Is a mallard a good match for that size bird?

    New to this whole duck thing. [​IMG]

    We had a flock of 12 until the neighbors dog got loose....&*(^&$!!!!...still smokin mad over that one!

    Well both my boys are in with a black swed and some other girls, so yes, they do fine [​IMG]

    Umm.. Im not totally sure as Im still researching shipping, but its prolly not a pretty number [​IMG]

    They are both very "active' though, and all the eggs I get from them are fertile. I have a 100% hatch rate with these two.

    Fabulous...I am terrible at offers tho' [​IMG]

    Is 10$ good? I would even take two if you have spares [​IMG]

    Can you pm me and give me your route and we can figure out where we can meet?

    I have ALWAYS wanted an Ancona! [​IMG]

    Bahaahhaahaa!

    Emmalynn, you are picking up your puppy from my favorite chicken breeder!

    Pampered, can I just meet her at your place and get my ducks?

    This just cracks me up!

    If that works for her, that is fine with me. I have no problem putting a duck in a box. How many do you want?
