    I will be leaving Jan 20 to go on some mission work and will be gone until May.... I am trying to sell or lease 4 ducks, breeding n show quality. I have placed this ad in the auction/listing area. If you can help me out or know of anyone please have them contact me.

    Ad as follows:
    I have 4 Welsh Harlequin ducks for sale. A breeding pair of silver harlequins both show quality and producing. Hen is 16 mos and drake is 10 mos, fully feathered and looking good. Excellent markings and size.

    And 2 top egg producing hens, breeding quality. One hen is 16 mos and the other is 10 months. Both are producing an egg a day. The older hen has raised one brood, is an excellent mother and egg producer. She only stopped laying long enough to hatch her batch and raise them. She also produces a huge double yolk egg every third or fourth day...

    Asking $20 each if you take all four. OR....... $50 if your local and I can get back 6 of their young this summer. I have to go on mission work til May 2011 and don't have anyone to take care of them..... OR... $25 and you can lease the 4 until May 2011, get your own brood from them, and I get the original ducks back...... Photos sent to your email...

    Hi... there are only 4, one drake and 3 hens.... all silver... wish you could get them. And yes the dominant female can get quite vocal but doesn't last long. The rest are pretty quiet...

    I am interested, sent you PM

    I do not care if they are loud.

    Ducks quack and are loud, so are roosters, geese, peacocks or guinea hens.

    They are all loud, much louder than my wife.
