    I'm looking for one or two females to increase my laying flock. Can pick up in northeastern or central Mass., southern New Hampshire or meet part way if you're farther away. While I'm primarily interested in khaki Campbell and Indian Runner ducks, other standard size breeds are also good!

    Please PM or reply here if you have some quackers available and what you want $ for them (I put $15 in the listing box because they require some kind of number or the post won't be accepted.).
    Thanks!

    Thanks, Learycow and Tony!
    @ Learycow: Where in southern Maine are you? I'm about 50 miles south of Kittery.

    @ Tony: I thought I read that the NAS is only allowing members to both sell and buy at their tailgates now. They used to allow non-members to buy, but if I remember right they have changed that. I should join anyway!

    Thanks, Learycow. That's doable! I'd love to come by your way after Easter. Will PM you later. I was in Saco to go canoeing with friends last August. What a pretty town.

    Yes buyers and sellers have to be memebers.I personaly think it is dumb,but it's only 20.00 for the year,not 8.00 every swap like some people in the area charge.You get a bulletin every month and a place to sell your birds or find birds you are looking for,well worth 20.00.Hopefully things will change but until then.

    I agree, Tony. It's worth it and they're a nice group. I've thought about signing up for years but never got around to it. Now I have the incentive since the tailgates are fun and useful.

    Thanks for replying. I'd take a "reverse trio" but I already have a drake and an African gander, so am reluctant to bring in any new males at the moment. Especially since its breeding season and the boys are aggressive! :)
