Are there any ducks or geese for sale Devon/Somerset?
« on: June 21, 2013, 10:11:56 pm »
Hi
I am looking for Embden Geese, Muscovy ducks, Indian runner ducks and Aylesbury ducks.

Does anyone have any for sale?

I live on the Somerset/Devon border

Many thanks

Not me but I got some Aylesbury hatching eggs from Devon so if you have no other responses, I can put you in touch with them. You need to decide Aylesbury utility or Aylesbury exhibition,

Hi,maybe its just the pictures but the ducks in the pictures look more like Pekings or Peking crosses to me not Aylesbury

Bellow is a picture of a Peking with an Aylesbury below that.Note the Aylesbury is much deeper in the keel.

I guess there's a bit of Pekin in loads of Aylesburys but mine (hatched from here) has the right colored bill for an Aylesbury. I think the really deep keels are associated with exhibition Aylesbury ducks, aren't they?

Hi,no the deep Keel is associated with an Aylesbury duck,anything less is not an Aylesbury and should not be sold as such.
