    I have 5 ducks. 2 are female and 3 are male. One of my males has a slight leg deformity due to a lack of proper vitamins. My other two males are picking on him horribly right now and I believe that it is because of the imbalance in sexes. I need another female. I would like a larger breed because my males are 2 Pekins and a Cayuga. I am having a hard time finding a grown female and can not do ducklings and chance getting more males.

    I am in Meade Co. but close to Louisville. I am hoping to find someone who might be going into Louisville for the State fair. [​IMG]

    I won't be going to the State Fair but I've got some young girls ready to go. There is 1 pekin, 1 pekin/Rouen mix, and 1 pekin/Runner mix for sure. They are 4-6 weeks old.

    According to google maps you are pretty far away from me [​IMG] I saw on your website that you ship, how does shipping work and is it safe for them? And what are your prices and how much is shipping normally?

    It's really too hot to ship right now but honestly it would be cheaper for you to drive down and pick them up. I'm about 1 1/2 hours south of Louisville, not too far [​IMG]

    Shipping would probably be $50-$60 and the ducks are $5 each.

    WOW $50 or $60?!?! Yeah, I love my little gimpy duck and want the other males to stop picking on him but NOT that much! [​IMG] At the price of gas right now driving is a little to steep to. I am keeping my fingers crossed that someone has a female for sale at the fair. Otherwise, I am hoping I come across someone or a market closer to me. I can't believe how hard it is to find ducks for sale around here! [​IMG] Thank you for trying to help though and if I get desprate and (can pester my husband enough) I may have to drive down there [​IMG]

    There's a swap in Shepherdsville but I'm not sure how often (weekly or biweekly) it goes. You might be able to find some there.
