    These boys are about 8 mo old and are buddies. Would prefer they go together.

    It would be around $45. I just paid that to have two chickens shipped to me from Alabama.

    How tame is the mandarin? I will be putting them in with my other calls. 2 males and 3 females and a bunch of babies once there old enough to go outside. Do you keep them in a covered pen? Mine is not covered and I plan on keeping everyones wings clipped.

    Thanks.

    He is very timid.He hangs with the call duck but neither really liked to be picked up. I lock them in at night but they roam around our fenced back yard during the day. I only let them out when I am home. I also clipped one wing last fall. These boys get along very good together but don't know what they'll do when placed with additional males.
