We sold 10 ducks, so we are now down to about 12. We sold the 1-2 year olds and kept the ducklings we got this spring. Five left on Thursday and when we did the evening chores I couldn't believe how much quieter it was in the poultry pen. Five more will go on Saturday to a different family.
We gave away 6 of the older hens, too! I can't believe someone wanted older hens, but we had 2 families that were interested in them. I put them in the online classifieds and they were spoken for within about 10 minutes of being posted. I'm not sure how many more people would have called if I had left the ad on longer.
And we sold Glacier and Jack (her wethered buckling) today, too. We are sad to see her go, but Vet2Be wants to keep Glacier's doeling because he thinks she is going to be better than her mother. Glacier is still milking 4-6 pounds each morning, so the woman who is buying her is very excited.
