    The problem that I see is that so many people give birds away for free, that the public knows that if they are patient, someone will give them ducks for free.

    That certainly makes it tough to sell birds. Even when the birds are much better than the free ones, a lot of the general population can't understand that there is a difference and better should cost more.

    I dont know maybe I should just put him for free maybe someone will then take him. But he neeeeds to gohes beating up my poor hens! I have 3 hens and 5 drakes. But one of the hens and one of the drakes are calls so they arent going anywhere. and we are eating 1. And keeping 2 males and 2 females besides the calls.
