Shetland ducks, arbroath
« on: June 07, 2015, 07:06:37 pm »
A trio of shetland ducks for sale 25, near arbroath,

Now on growers, well feathered, living outside , no heat

Potentially unrelated as I have 2 trios running together ( bottom picture)

How tame are they?  I had indian runner/KC but gave them away because I want ducks that will be friendly - these took off as soon as they saw me coming.

They were handled whilst in house for first 4 weeks and have been outside in small enclosure since so not been handled as much.
I have 3 that are still in the house, I am 95 % sure they are all girls! they will be tame, if they continue to be handled.

Expecting ducklings to hatch in next week if anyone is interested, I can keep them for you till no heat is required or if you have heat lamp/ glow that's fine too

As much or as little as you can spare will be dandy :thumbsup:

Some photos, the 3 slightly larger ones with lighter bib are reserved. The other 3 are potentially available. I am reasonably confident that they are all girls.

These are not the original trio, these are ducklings that have since hatched
