Hey, I picked up my first drake today. I currently own two Buff Orpington ducks which I fell in love with at a local Poultry Auction a few weeks ago. I drove 2hrs to get him and I’m going to call him ‘Rupert’.
A bit of background….I originally had three Muscovie ducks but believe two of them flew away as they simply disappeared one day. My middle son who is quite sensitive was devestated. As a result, I attended a Poultry Auction for the first time and came up with quite a few new additions.
These included: Three Indian Runner ducks (as per my middle son), two Buff Orpington Ducks (as I thought they were beautiful!) a Silkie Chicken (as I thought they were very cool) and four Isa Brown x Plymouth Rock (as per my husband for eggs).
Anyway, back to Rupert. I’m hoping to start breeding Buff Orpington Ducks. I started researching them when I bought the original two and they are a rare breed here apparently. I thought I could obviously help with that and provide them with an awesome home. I’ll attach some information on them under the ducks page when I get around to creating it.
Anyway, I’ll post a photo of him and my other ladies below.
Have a great day!
