That's a nice looking batch! How many ducklings do they usually average?

yes, I have several ones that were first hatch, they are pretty much full grown but unsure if I can tell sexes yet (the duck tail on males)

I am charging $70/pair

We have had awful luck with ducklings this year! Glad you've had better, those are lovely!
