    I have to most likely sell my drake and duck pair who have been inseparable since they were born and are now just over a year old.
    Someone is very keen to buy them off me, but he has quite a few of his own. I'm concerned my pair will get picked on or beaten up. Is it ok to introduce a pair that have never been with other ducks to a new flock?
    My pair and all of his ducks are indian runners.

    I would put their well-being first and talk it over with the person who wants to buy them and level with him about how you feel.

    Can you visit their new home? If the potential buyer seems annoyed with your concern, I would take that as a sign to find another buyer.
