    I may be of no help at all but, here is what I'd do. I'd pick what I think is my favorite breed or couple of breeds of ducks and keep those. I'd do the same with the pheasents. Only you know which one's you like best so, only you can make this desision.

    Out of the ducks, I would just keep the Mandarins and Wood Ducks.

    Put them all in your freezer and enjoy your labors with a hot meal on the long cold winter nights.

    Now, 1much - No one will pay what they are really worth. They ate more feed than can easily be recouped by selling them.

    Kill the fatted calf and enjoy your own fruits of labor is always a good option.
