    Hi everyone. So I was looking into breeding ducks to be able to sell the ducklings at the market. I was wondering though, how much should or could I sell blue swedish show quality ducks for? I would sell them at any age, don't know if that would make a difference. I was also thinking about finding a buyer before I actually bred them just so they would already have a set home to go to, and that way I won't be tempted to keep them!!!!!! :lol: all answers are greatly appreciated.

    I like the idea of finding buyers first, kind of like a c.s.a. farm (community supported agriculture, where customers pay up front for a share of the produce).

    For prices, I am clueless. However, there is a buy-sell-trade forum, perhaps you can find something there (though I know it's mostly chickens). You could look at what the bigger hatcheries are asking, too.
