    For a male here is 5 - 15 depending on quality
    For a female 10 - 25.

    I would not spend over 10 for a adult cross breed.

    I would not pay more than $5 for a Mallard Mix male. Females for $10-15.
    If they are pure males around $10. Females anywhere from $15-20.

    Females will go for more since I assume they are young and will be laying eggs soon if they are this years hatch?

    I know someone who breeds SQ mallards and sells them for $10.00 a piece. He gave me one that was an uh-oh cross between a mallard and a runner duck, for free. Someone hopped the fence [​IMG]

    Pretty sure mine is a drake.. The tail feathers are starting to curl slightly, and the head is getting so green! Plus he/she has a raspy quack.

    If it is a he, I'm going to call him Barry [​IMG]
