Thanks for the warm welcome! And also thanks for the advice. I didnt realize that the Jumbo Pekins are prone to leg issues; thats good to know. Will definitely aim to have like sizes now. I have another couple of questions though. Looking at Craigslist there are a few people selling eggs, ducklings and ducks even now. The price varies wildly though, from free or just a couple of dollars to $150 for a pair of white Pekins. What is a fair price for a nice, friendly healthy duck? Also, if we go the duckling route, how early can they be sexed? A flock of males would be interesting but not so good for egg production. Cheers.
