    SOLD. Thanks!
    sold. Happy duck family with 2 laying hens. Welsh Harlequin pair with their 3 ducklings, Isa Brown and Silver Laced Wyandotte hen for $40 or best offer to somewhere they won't be eaten by a person. Ducks and hens are 2 years old. They were raised together, so they forage together.

    This picture I have of the drake is from last year, he looks the same and it shows the same hen.[​IMG]

    The drake has something against blue chickens ??? He's been pulling feathers on my two bantam hens who are blue. Also the drake has a limp from vitamin deficiency when he was growing. The pair are from Holderread Top Show Quality mating, I don't know how to judge if they are TSQ. Drake wouldn't be showable from the limp, but maybe good for breeding TSQ. I think the ducklings are 2 drakes, one hen from their bill color at hatch. The chickens were from TSC.

    Depending on location I may deliver or drive part way.

    Wow. I wish I had a passport or enhanced license. I would take them in a heartbeat and I'm only 4 hrs away through Canada. Stupid new rules.

    I ended up with a apair from your eggs last year but fox got the hen in the fall and the drake this spring. I now pen my valuable birds. Alas no more welshiesy kids are heartbroken. They miss their jake as the drake was named.

    I'm glad a couple hatched out for you, and sad a predator got them. Always hard to lose a bird. If I hear of anyone going to NY maybe I can send them your way.

    I'll let you know if I decide to split them. Those two chickens and ducks really seem to like each other.
