    UPDATED: Oct 19th, 2014: We have a few adult trios left and a select few juveniles. We can still ship birds! Act quickly as the juvenile males don't have much longer. "Freezer camp" time is coming quickly.

    For the first time ever, we are letting go of a large number of our Ancona duck breeding flock. We have a new breeding plan in mind and need to focus on a select few to accomplish it. The rest are for sale. We are constantly growing out juveniles right now too, so some juveniles are likely for sale or will be soon.


    As you would expect, all are NPIP certified and can be shipped. However, I have a huge disdain for the USPS right now and the weather is way too hot to ship. In light of this, we will not take deposits nor hold any birds that aren't being picked up by a person. We know of a few transport sites/contacts and we would be glad to pass them on, but the buyer is responsible for figuring out transport, not us. We have enough to do right now. The NPIP paperwork should get the birds into any continental US state and, if you are willing to pay for it, we can get the paperwork to get them into Canada.



    We will update this list of what's for sale as much as possible, but be patient with me. If you decide to buy a large group, we can negotiate price also.

    Adults ($85/trio or $60/pair):

    Trio #1: Lavender Drake (3 yrs), 2 Blue Hens (2 yrs)* - SOLD
    -will produce: Silver males (that carry chocolate) & Lilac females
    -with Black Hen, would produce: Blue males (that carry chocolate) & Lavender females

    Trio #2: Lavender Drake (2 yrs), 2 Lilac Hens (3-4 yrs)*
    -will produce: All Lilacs
    -with Black Hen, would produce:
    Blue males (that carry chocolate) & Lavender females​

    Trio #3: Blue Drake (3 yrs), Lilac Hen (3-4 yrs), Blue Hen (2yrs)
    -will produce: Blues, Lavenders, Silvers, maybe Lilacs

    Trio #4: Black Drake (2014 Hatch), 2 Lilac Hens (3-4 years) SOLD
    -will produce: Blues, Chocolates (if the male carries it - likely he does)

    ~All birds with an (*) can be exchanged for another bird with one.~


    Juveniles (Sold in Pairs/Trios only):

    Pair #5: Silver Drake, Black Hen HOLD

    Drakes: Lavender, Blue, Fawn Tricolor, & Chocolate

    Ducks: Mallard/Grey Tricolor, Lilac




    Pictures can be seen on our website, link at the top. Sorry the pictures aren't individual ones, but "ain't nobody got time for that", LOL.



    We will consider trades for these and our adult Cotton Patch geese, in the form of Bielefelders, Croad Langshans, and/or Golden Guernsey goats (weird combo I know).

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask us. We'll be happy to answer if we can. ​

    That's actually one of our duck eggs. That whole batch is duck eggs to be specific. Our chicken lay medium brown eggs.
