Ask if they are confident that they have a predator proof set up for the duckling and is confident it is as safe as can be made before selling them a couple more.

Good idea. I do still have 8 but just a few days ago they were here happy and safe.

Don't think I have the constitution to deal with this. No more ducklings for me. Unless I 100% decide on using my Muscovy to breed for meat. But, that is different.

It makes me sick how people can take animals and have no idea how to care for them or keep them safe, or make the effort to give them a good quality of life!

Again, this is why I feel guilty. I didn't ask. Should have, but didn't.

I have an extensive list of questions that I aske before I sell my babies. I have turned down at least 3 people in the last year because they were not equipped with housing etc. If they do not have a set up, I do not sell them anything.
