I bought them over time along with my other ducks. They never fitted in with the crowd, my drakes pinned them down and didnt do the DEED with them and the bigger ducks and even now the baby ducks peck them out of the way. I advertised them on Craigs List and have dreaded the call, not knowing where they are going, if they were going to end up in the pot or who knows!!!! Well 10 mins ago I got that dreaded call. Some guy up called from...2 1/2 hours away wants them. He raised 4 babies from TSC and has ended up with 3 drakes and 1 female. His female is getting beaten to death as for a better word and wants my ducks to give her a bit of a rest. He put my mind at ease when he said.... I love my little ducks. So, I now dont feel to bad about it, but im going to miss the 6 eggs a day they have been laying.
