So, I heard about this lady who has adult pekin ducks for sale. I jumped on it because they are so cute and have such a great personality. When I showed up she had what she called her Drake pen (fully inclosed) and her Female pen (fully inclosed). I asked her if I could buy 3 females and 1 male. A duck for each of my child of the same sex (kids idea). When we went into the pens I noticed they all were missing their tails. She explained that the some dog got in and had a hay day with the ducks. And swears up and down that none have ever been out so the sexes are a guarantee. I was ok with the guarantee and figured why would she lie to me. So, I purchased 4 ducks (3 females and 1 male) for a total of 100.00. Now a month later and their tails are all coming in and guess what I have all Drakes. I have called the lady to inform her that she has sold me all drakes. And she will not answer her phone. So, last week I tried to call again and her phone was disconnected. I wasn't mad at first I figured maybe she didn't know. And I would hate for her to have a bad reputation. (that's what i get for thinking) So, I drove the hour drive out to her house. When I arrived I introduced myself thinking maybe she forgot who I was. And this is exactly what I told her "I am sorry to bother you but, I think you might have mixed up your pekins. because I thought I bought 3 females and 1 male. I just don't want you to get someone that can destroy a ranches reputation for selling animals. My kids have fallen in love with the ducks I bought so I don't want to trade them. But if I could buy a female I would really appreciate it." Now here's the getter that just blew my mind away. She didn't say nothing for a minute or two. Then she just starts off telling me that it is might fault and I should have known that they were drakes and only stupid people like me should own any animal because we can't even tell a female from a male. And the only way she would sale me another one is if I have 100.00 for the female. I couldn't believe my mind. I was going there to be a good person in hopes that maybe she made a mistake and didn't even know it and after hearing from other ranchers around seems this is her way of making money. She cuts the tails so you can't tell a difference and sells you all drakes. I felt like such a fool. And having such high hopes I would have duck eggs for my baking company. Ugh. I am sorry this was so long I just needed to tell someone !! Thanks for taking the time to read this!
