    I traded some produce for what I though was two female ducks. Now it appears that at least one of them is male. I already have plenty of male ducks, so unless he's a special breed then I'm going to sell him.

    His feet are darkish and he has some blue at the end of his wings. Anyone have any idea?

    Nope i don't but looking at the wire he is standing on makes me cringe, that is not good for ducks feet. He is a pretty duck though.

    My ducks have acres of pasture to roam in. He's just in jail because he's been raping the smaller hens. Unless he's something special, he's off to the auction tomorrow.

    He maybe a cross of Cayuga and something or he maybe an ornamental, you might want to post there too.
