Eight ducklings set for Karara farm life

TAKING some shade at the Warwick Pig and Calf Sale yesterday were mates Luke Clark and Ben Moody, with a newly-purchased box full of tiny ducklings.

Mr Clark said the young flock was bound for his parent's farm at Karara.

"I bought eight ducklings today for $21,” he said.

"The plan is to take them home and feed them and bring them back to market in a few months.

"It's a good way to make a little extra money.”

Mr Clark said all going well, the grown ducks would sell for between $15 and $20.

"So there's a tidy profit if it works out like that,” he said.

"I'm trying to save up for a new horse.

"I have one but he's a bit silly, young and active, a bit hard to control.”

The ducks won't be alone on the farm by any stretch.

"We've got two horses, a pig, three cows, a heap of sheep, one duck, two geese, three turkeys, two dogs, a cat and heaps of chickens,” he said.

"These fellas will have a good life, plenty of grain and a swim on the dam.”
