You need to be firm about the end date Matt otherwise it will never happen. What breed of ducks are they? We just got some indian runner ducks to add to our menagerie. :)

Sure do Faye - Might have to put out a contract! They are muscovies. I've told my wife their names are
a'lorange, cripsy, sousvide, pekin & confit :)

Been trying to get a supply of duck crumble -does anyone know anywhere in perth that sells specific starter, grower and layer crumbles for ducks? Weston Milling do them but none of the shops that stock it such as city farmers stock the duck range.

Thanks Faye. Will check them out, have bought straw from there before. They certainly are cute, though thankfully grow quickly out of that phase into an uglier tasty format ;)
