Indian Runner Ducks - Norfolk

Postby KBODDY » Wed Jun 28, 2017 1:10 pm

Hello All -
New to this forum and in a bit of a pickle, hoping someone can advise please?
My Husband keeps a few Indian Runner ducks, and their numbers have increased by a staggering number this year - can anyone suggest an idea other than dispatching healthy birds? They are quite a mixed bag of colours 9 at 3 weeks old, 11 at 2 weeks old and 7 at 1 weeks old.
Many thanks

have you tried listing them for sale, on something like preloved ?

thanks Farmer Warren,
would like to list them for sale but don't know what to ask for them, and worried about offering FOC to rehome as there is quite a few reptile enthusiasts and falconers around and we would prefer chicks to be rehomed.
Wondered if we had no takers yet as still quite young?
in the meantime we are enjoying their antics but definitely need to find new homes for them

Is there a livestock mart near you? Gumtree is quite good too

I was under the impression there were some sale sites that do not allow you to sell pets and livestock - but I hadn't considered Gumtree, will check it out. Thanks
