    No worries....I had to get rid of my first duck because he turned out to be a drake and was getting too rowdy with my chickens....I obtained 2 lovely females from a hatchery after which helped, but it was still hard to get rid of the guy...he was so friendly and we were all sort of attatched to him....your boys will be going to a good home it sounds like, my guy went to a lady at our local hatchery who loves him so I do know that he is doing better where he is, he even has a mate!

    I have three young birds who are leaving tomorrow to go to a new state (6 hour road trip by animal courier). So I kinda know how you feel. I feel sorry for them, because I know it'll be scary, and sorry for the two brothers who will be left behind, and who will be confused. But I know that they are going to a great home and they will settle in well.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I totally get where you are coming from :) It'll all be fine though. Ducks are adaptable, and they will settle in to their new home just fine. They'll be a bit out of their comfort zone at first, but soon the unfamiliar will be familiar.

    With your girl that is left alone, do you have a plan for integrating her into the flock? Buddying her with one of your older birds for a while?

    why not keep a blue boy and send one of the production boys with the juveniles. Best of both worlds then

    I think something is wrong with your posts, all I can see is "..................................................."
