Mandarin Ducks - $75 (Aspers, PA)

540 Bull Valley Rd
Spring 2024 Hatch - Regular colored Mandarin Ducks - $75 each or $150 male/female unrelated pair. Fully feathered and off heat. There are 2 definite males available and several that are almost fully feathered. We will have unrelated pairs available as well.

Pickup in Aspers, PA 17304. We do not ship at this time.

Mandarins nest in elevated nest boxes and can fly (they are NOT pinioned), so they will need a pen with adequate space and a wood duck nest style box. Netting (minimum 2" or 1" recommended) should be placed over the aviary to contain them and prevent overhead predator losses. Mandarins are a beautiful wild duck that is related to the wood duck. They are very curious ducks and enjoy change ups in their aviaries. We use large rocks, stumps and even potted herbs and veggies (kale, swiss chard, etc) and move them around to stimulate them and give them variety. They should have access to water (a small pond with fresh moving water, a kiddie style pool or similar). The water does not have to be very deep, but should be fresh and if using a kiddie pool, complete water changes should be done frequently.
We feed our Mandarins a mixture of Kalmbach Duck & Goose pellets, Mazuri Waterfowl Maintenance (or Mazuri Waterfowl Breeder during breeding season) and Wild Bird Seed mix. They enjoy fresh greens: Romaine, Kale, Swiss Chard, etc and they love herbs: Thyme, Oregano, Marjoram (a favorite) and Rosemary.
