I started raising Ducks Gees e and Swans when i was 13
I have raised all North American at one point or another.
List of the bird we have raised
Ring necked ducks
Blue wing and green wing teal
Greater and Lesser Scaup
I had the swans to support my Duck Habit
They were the only birds that made money, , with the exception of the canvas backs $185 a young pair.
But that wasn't what I had them
Trumpeters can fetch $450 each 4 months old.
$800-$1000 for breeding age 5-7 yrs.
The trumpeter do not breed in captivity , sometimes ,as long as 7 yrs.
I currently raise Trumpeter Swans and English Mutes
Started the tractor restorations so the ducks had to go.
Now the swans support my tractor habit
