    Ok got you, difficult to tell from the pic. As you probably know almost none of the neo colour variants breed completely true given their mixed ancestry. Bloody Mary as well.

    If memory serves me correct, this is the first time in 3 years that we have not had so much hail, let alone the previous hailstorm with larger stones and almost like a blanket of snow.

    I've also been finding a lot of mushrooms too and it's quite earlier in the year as well - usually find them later in the summer after several thunder and rain storms. I'm now waiting for my rain lilies to start their magic but they are still young so I don't know if they will pop up their magic flowers.

    I have been trying to get a wooden apple size box containing two small size ducks from Harrismith down to Cape Town by road for sometime without success. The mainstream couriers don't do livestock. I am happy to sign an indemnity form.

    Flying them down from Bloem that's if I can get them there for starters is also problematic as regards various permits required and given other folks recent experience with air freight and livestock.

    Any suggestions most welcome or with folks that might have contacts in the courier/freighting business ?

    @Trev Pleco: Try animal welfare sites, usually they have people giving lifts for shelter animals all over the place to new adoption homes. Sometimes they circulate around on Facebook asking for lifts to certain places to a new home.

    Oh that sucks...

    I've been wanting to get more black hens but just found out they are quite expensive and difficult to get. Our only black hen died a few weeks back and we don't know why - my mom tells me that they are R250 for one :eek: :confused:

    Google has some stuff listed but might be pricey (just google animal transport services). Pet moving services? Try this - http://www.petmovers.co.za/ and http://www.petsentransit.co.za/about-us/
