    I am thinking about getting a pair of 1 year old Wood Ducks for $50. They will lay this year. Is this a good price? Also how many clutches do they lay a year? Do they lay up to 15 eggs a year and that's it? I am new to the breeding thing and I already have Call Ducks that are laying!

    That is a good price for them! They lay around 15 eggs in a clutch and will lay 1 clutch unless you take the clutch, then she will lay another one

    Is there any type of license needed to sell them or the eggs?
