    Relist... will be taking them to a swap this weekend unless someone speaks up here in the next few days!

    Original post:
    I need to rehome my ducks, unfortunately. The Black East Indies pair ("Apollo" and "Calliope") were bred here in Mass. by Shawn Streeter and were hatched in early spring 2009. He is a major presence at shows around here, and this pair are some of the best that he didn't keep for himself that year!

    The call ducks ("Earl Grey", "Cappuccino", and "Mocha") are this year's babies and were bred in the region as well. I don't have the name of their breeder but can track it down if you'd like it. I was told they were SQ when I bought them and recently have had input from other BYCers that the type on the lavenders is not good enough to show. The chocolate is a bit better. If I were keeping them I might see if I could get some additional in-person input to see what's what, so that may be an option for you. Even if you don't show them, they are beautiful and absolutely hilarious!

    SQ BEI pair - $50
    Lavender call duck pair - $40
    SQ? Chocolate call hen - $20 (would love for her to go with the lavender pair if possible)

    They are tame enough to come and eat treats out of your hand, though they really don't like being caught! The call ducks LOVE playing in their water tub... I feel like they really deserve a pond or bigger pool then I can offer here in the city. The BEI pair are a bit calmer and are very sweet. All get along very well with my chickens and dog. [​IMG]

    No shipping - you're welcome to pick them up here or I could meet up somewhere within an hour or two of Boston, MA. I'm happy to come to any swaps in NH or MA this weekend to get them to you as well. Please let me know if you have any questions!

    Gosh I sure would love to have those Lavender call ducks and the chocolate hen as well. You are just to far away from me. I just deciced after looking into what type of ducks I want I decided on these wonderful Call Ducks (of course I have not seen the lavender I just saw white) OH how I would love these babies.
