Thank you Dundonald but that's a bit far - I may go to Lanark Poultry Thursday sales, there's one in a week or so.  Otherwise I have a broody hen at the moment, so may get some hatching eggs.
 
Thank you though  :wave:

Did you manage to get any call ducks ?  We have a pair of white call ducks that have been living as pets in our garden for the last 2 years that are in need of a new home due to a house move.

I have been looking for a companion  for a duckling I hatched this year whose friends unfortunately died.
Hasn't grown a curl yet so may be female. She is apricot. Happy to let you have her maybe in exchange for some eggs next year? Let me know. Hope you have had a good summer and all animals are well. Fu

I don't know if these are too far, they are between Longtown and Brampton, but I know the people selling them and have seen the ducks and they are super.

Thanks StewartClansman, I think Yve1962 is keen to offload, but Susannah may be interested when she reads this. 
 
You out there Susannah?

Yve1962 came good and ducks received at the Scotland/England border today.  All settled in very well and our resident call came to check them all out (wee black far left of pic). Many thanks to Yvonne and husband, and neighbour  :wave:
