    Hello good evening:
    I'm wondering if someone can sell me a baby duck for this Christmas. Please let me know the price. I will really appreciate it, it as a gift for my sister since her Las duck passed away months ago.

    I own a pekin named Ming-Ming. She gives us huge eggs, hardy ever goes broody, and has to be the world's nicest and tamest ducks! If you dont have one I suggest you get one unless you live in a suburban area due to them being very loud.

    I have 9 pekin ducks in my flock of 25. The hens have just started to lay again after 3 months off.

    Absolutely! Hope I don't have to wait a few years. I've kind of been side-tracked with ducks and that's what I'll get in the spring but geese are still a big one on the list. [​IMG]

    If @sumi starts a breed focus thread on geese, I'm a goner.

    I'm doomed.



    But what a way to go! I'm taking off right now to go order my ducks. Need to get that order in before the geese focus threads show up and my order $ amount goes higher, lol.
