I'm needing to cut back and am wanting to add a few purebred Dorpers to the farm this year so I am offering
for sale a small starter flock of sheep including four 3 year old ewes and a ram - I haven't mouthed him so I
do not know how old he is. The ewes are a hair/wool cross with freckles/speckles & the ram is a solid white
hair/wool cross. Romanov & Dorset, I believe. I bought him last fall as I was needing something to cover
my ewes. The ewes are Romanov & wool breed crosses, the wool aspect is about 1/4 Suffolk, the rest I'm not
sure. Ewes are bred to lamb sometime after February 17 and before the end of May. Two are starting to bag
up slightly now. This will be the second lambing for these ewes. Pictures of these animals can be found
below, they were recently sheared & have a few cuts from that which can be seen on the photos. They're
healing nicely and shouldn't present any problems. The ram is also recovering from an injury to his eye
which appears to be healing well, but his top eyelid is scarred. Email with any questions using Sheep in the
*** I can possibly deliver these animals in the next week or two. I have a tentative plan for a trip in the next
week or so through OK, AR, MO, & back into KS. My route will take me through Wichita, down I35 to 412.
Through Tulsa, Siloam Springs, Springdale, & Harrison. Then I'll be heading north on 65 to Springfield, MO.
From there I have to get to Edgerton, KS although I don't know the route I'll take as of yet. From Edgerton
I'll hit I35 through Emporia & to Wichita before heading back home on 400. I'll be able to haul sheep & meet
people along the trip as long as I don't have to get off the HWY any more than a roadside convenience store,
etc. I'm also selling Muscovy and will be able to haul both provided that both fit in the back of the truck - I'm
not taking a trailer. If anyone is interested in meeting, they'll have to bring something to put the birds in as
I'll be carrying them in a dog kennel and a trailer or stock rack for the sheep.
The ram is pictured below.

|Asking $1000 for all or will trade for a 14' or 16' stock trailer like the one below.
Must be in sound condition, some rust & dings okay.
I'm downsizing my flock of Muscovy. I've just got too much to do and have too many irons in the fire so
I'm going to be passing on some of my birds to someone else who'll be able to work with them &
maintain/improve the breed.
First I'm offering a small starter flock of whites. I have a 2004 Shulte drake out of Minnesota. He's nice, not
the largest bird but he's a good start. Heavy caruncling, more than I like but with each subsequent
generation his offspring have had less caruncling. With him I have 3 white ducks. These are actually
daughters of his, with an unrelated mother. They have slightly less caruncling but still decent sized birds.
Not sure how old they are; bad record keeping and lost leg bands = me, all summed up. I think they're 2005
or 2006 hatch. Asking $50 for 4, $15 each if sold individually. (Which I really, really, really don't want to do.)
The second flock I'm offering is a flock of dark & chocolate ripples. The drake is a HUGE drake, probably
the largest rippled bird you could find. He ambulates extremely well for a bird his size and I consider him
*perfect*, not too large, not too small. He carries chocolate. He is a BP Witt bird out of South Carolina. In
addition I have 3 unrelated dark ripple ducks (unrelated to the drake, possibly related to each other) and two
unrelated chocolate ripple ducks. (Again, unrelated to the drake, but related to each other) Hatch dates on
these are 2005 & 2006. The chocolate ripples are from Shulte birds. The dark ripple ducks come from Iowa,
although I don't know the breeder. These are generally the first birds to set & are hugely successful
hatching ducklings. These would be an excellent, excellent project for someone seriously interested in
Muscovy as you would have a perfect breeding program from the get-go. Asking $125, will not split this
flock up. I'm also going to be picky who this set goes to as I don't want the genetics/work behind these
birds to go to waste. I don't care if some of the offspring are invited to dinner at some point, I just want a
deliberate attempt at improving /maintaining the quality & presence of this quality of bird and don't want
to hear about this drake feeding the family for Thanksgiving dinner!
The third flock I have for sale is self-blues & cream. I have a 2005 hatch cream drake and duck, a 2006
hatch duck, and a 2007 hatch duck. Then I have a few self blue ducks & two 2007 hatch self-blue drakes that
carry cream. I can't remember exactly how many self blue ducks I have, I'm thinking 3 or 4. The cream
birds & one or two of the SBs come from BP Witt in South Carolina, the others come from my own
breedings &/or Iowa. The 2006 & 2007 hatches are mine. I'd like this flock, or at least part of it, to remain
together. Asking $15 each. $50 for 4. Will sell the young drakes separate. Would be willing to go with a
cream flock & a self-blue flock. These aren't your more common colors so again, I'd like to find someone
willing to work with the breed.
I also have a couple of blues to sell. I have two Shulte drakes, one of which has become hideously ugly this
year. He's not aging well, has a wilting crest/caruncles issue. He might go to the meat buyer. He's got good
genetics, but he's 4 this year so I guess he's becoming an old man similar to the freakishly large ears and
noses some older men get. Bred to a lesser caruncled female he'd be an asset. 2004 hatches. I have three
blue ducks, unsure of age on two of 'em. These are very nice ducks. The one is a 2005 hatch, I believe.
She's a Shulte bird. The other two are BP Witt birds. I also have a 2007 hatch young blue drake and a 2006
hatch silver drake for sale. $15 each for these, $50 for 4. I prefer the two Witt ducks to go together to
someone who'll work with them.
Last but not least is 5 lilac (or possibly blue fawn; there's some debate) birds. 2 drakes, 3 ducks - I'm going
to be keeping the 4th. These are out of Iowa, have no idea about their breeding, they're 2007 hatch. From
the looks of the caruncling they'll be decent birds, just have some filling out to do. $10 one or all.
I do have a single chocolate duck and two black ducks which are 2007 hatches. $15 ea. After this year I'll
also have a huge black Witt drake. He's a monster bird, again, he ambulates very well & is a gorgeous bird.
His only fault is gypsy face. $25 for him.
The last birds that I can think of are a chocolate drake which has a bit of white speckling on his breast, he's
mostly solid and I have no idea how old he is - I'm thinking 2005 but could be wrong. He's from a local
breeder. Not the largest bird and doesn't have the best caruncling but he'd do well in a homestead situation.
$10 for him. Then I have a black white head drake, 2007 hatch, $10. *sheesh* I think that's it!
In the end I will be keeping my blacks & chocolates and my barred flock which contains Chocolate, SB,
Black, Blue, Cream, and I'll add that lilac duck to the barred flock this year.
Will try to get photos when the weather improves. Can ship but honestly any more you just can't ship
without spending an arm and a leg. Single Omni shippers now cost $40 just to ship, that's not counting the
purchase price or the cost of postage with the actual bird in it! Add the cost of the bird & shipping two
ways and you're looking at over $100 for a single bird. Could possibly meet halfway at some point or will
be willing to deliver within a couple hundred miles with compensation for gas. PM me or Email for more
I'm possibly making a trip in the next week or so through OK, AR, MO, & back into KS. My route will take
me through Wichita, down I35 to 412. Through Tulsa, Siloam Springs, Springdale, & Harrison. Then I'll be
heading north on 65 to Springfield, MO. From there I have to get to Edgerton, KS although I don't know
the route I'll take as of yet. From Edgerton I'll hit I35 through Emporia & to Wichita before heading back
home on 400. I'll be able to haul birds & meet people along the trip as long as I don't have to get off the
HWY any more than a roadside convenience store, etc. Can combine a sheep & duck delivery provided
that both the birds & the sheep fit in the back of the truck - I'm not taking a trailer. If anyone is interested in
meeting, they'll have to bring something to put the birds in as I'll be carrying them in a dog kennel and a
trailer or stock rack for the sheep.
