Well mom said today that I need to pick a number and thats all the permenant ducks Im allowed to have. We didnt do very well at Santuck, sold both my gorgeous muscovy boys but didnt sell one stinky duckling. Everyone wanted pond ducks or had no idea how to care for them and these guys are a few weeks short of being able to be put on the pond. So.... What should my number be? Ducks I will prolly NEVER EVER part with - Monty - Bibbed mallard drake Sharpie - Magpie Hen Catfish - Cayuga cross hen Goonie - Muscovy drake Dark Knight - Muscovy hen Then I have : Raven - Cayuga hen Bandit - Magpie cross Mousse - Buff cross Bertha - Buff cross Smudge - Buff cross That if something drastic happened i could sell. Now , Im getting two Chocloate pied muscovy hens on the 18th. And I have the 16 Magpie x runner ducklings that Im thinking of keeping 6 ( two of each new coloring ) . And im trying to sell the other ten. BUT - There are so many other breeds I want to try and Im thinking I prolly need to get a Drake of the same breed as My magpie or cayuga so I can have some pure babies as well as My designers. PLUS in March I think I want to get two trios of chickens to try them out. Or maybe just one trio. Hopefully by Spring I will have four seperate pens -Two are about 12 x 15 I think... Im not good with Measurements and the other two are going to be a little bit bigger than that. I DO free range everyother day for about an hour or two. So with that info .. WHat should my permenant number of birds be???
