    Ooh, really? I almost got a pair at the last auction I was at for $40! No one wanted to buy them but Midas told me it wasn't a smart idea.
     
  4. My favorite are the Muscovy ducks! they have such personality....they wag their tails
    when greeting you and it seems they do when they are happy too!
    I have 9 muscovy right now and 4 of them have learned that if they "knock" on the
    door they can get an extra treat! They let me pet on them unlike the other ducks too! [​IMG]

    $40 is a good price for a juvenile pair, but not a good idea if your not set up for them. Visit hottentotteal's teal thread or my aviary thread for good ideas to construct an aviary to prepare for them.

    Welsh haequins and silkie ducks are my favorite. But anconas and rouens are very close behind
