HI all, As you probably know, I am getting a pair of mini silver appleyards from holderreads this fall. I have a couple (more) questions: My first may sound silly but anyways, I keep goats and in order to prove they are "purebred" I have to show registration papers. Do ducks have registration papers or just papers that prove they are purebred? I am thinking, no? 2nd: Since mini silver a. can fly, I plan to clip their wings. I won't be showing until next year, but just for future reference, If your ducks' wings are clipped and they are at a show/fair, will the judge mark them down? Or, will the judge not care and just focus on the confirmation of the duck? 3rd: How often do ducks molt a year? 4th: Should I clip ducks' wings once a month, once every five months, etc.? Or, just go on when they get long? 5th: I am not intending to start a big flock or anything, but would just like to get some offspring capable of being show quality. So, I plan to get one mini silver a. that is breeder quality and the other show breeder quality.(here is the link to explain this: http://holderreadfarm.com/adult_birds_price_list_page/adult_birds_price_list.htm . How does this sound? Thanks and I think thats about it!!
