** DUCKLINGS AND BUTCHER READY DUCKS** Our freezers are full and we have some beautiful birds looking for new homesteads or an appointment with a few home butchers – I have some beautiful muscovies in the following colors:
blue, lilac (or blue fawn, or lavender, or cream – i dunno, but it’s pretty), chocolate and black. Most are pied. Many have blue eyes. Many will have ‘ripple’ patterns.
$5 for unsexed ducklings
$7 for fully feathered, pretty sure they’re sexed
$10 for fully feathered, young sexed hens
$15 for fully feathered, just about butcher ready, drakes *
Willing to make deals on quantities

We raise several beautiful colors of Muscovy Ducks mainly for meat, plus a small flock of laying ducks. All of our birds are free range on pasture, supplemented with fermented grains for gourmet meat and delicious/nutritious eggs with bright orange yolks! The meat from our Muscovy ducks is outstanding (our personal favorite meat from our farm) and we raise broiler chickens once or twice a year. Muscovy duck meat is dark red and is lower in fat than the traditional Pekin duck, but still fatty enough to be decadent, tender and delicious. Pan seared duck breasts are about the most delicious dish one can serve: the sirloin of poultry!

Our laying ducks and chickens are fed a corn/soy free feed. Duck eggs are a baker’s delight! More protein than chicken eggs makes for more stable meringues and poofier rises. Plus: they’re delicious and rich! Our duck eggs are about the size of a jumbo chicken egg.

Eggs:

  • Duck Eggs: $4/6-pack, $8/dozen 
  • Chicken Eggs: $4/dozen.

Meat:

  • Whole Muscovy Duck: Frozen: $6.50/lb Fresh: $7.00/lb

Domestic Rabbits

We raise pedigreed New Zealand rabbits in black, white and broken black. My goals are to breed healthy, show quality rabbits with calm temperaments, great mothering skills and an emphasis on meat production/ rapid growth rate. I’m also focusing on breeding excellent New Zealand rabbits with great color and overall quality and to contribute only the best genetics to other breeders. I have invested time and money on bringing in quality animals from the best local breeders and am happy to be a part of improving this great breed! We offer live animals for sale as breeding stock (or for the home butcher) with or without pedigrees. I will only sell my best animals as breeding stock, so availability is limited and seasonal. Not every animal makes the cut to be sold as breeding stock, so we are also happy to offer delicious meat for sale to feed our community.

Our breeding stock of New Zealand rabbits:

  • Note – i really need to take new photos of all my animals. This page has not been updated well.

Bucks:

Birdsong’s Bramble(RLZ) – Legs of Grand Champion: 3, including Best of Breed, Best Opposite of Breed and Best of Variety.  Bramble has great growth rate, dense coat and solid conformation with a gorgeous, huge head. I look forward to developing my black line with this meaty boy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ScottyCFR Spotty Scotty (CFR 132). Legs of Grand Champion: 5. Registered Grand Champion rabbit. Handsome broken black buck with depth to spare! He’s here to make Birdsong Farm rabbitry some show stopping kits!

 

 

 

 

Not shown:

T3NK1: My newest white buck is a bit lazy but has an awesome head, great bone and decent depth when you can convince him to hold a pose. He’s a great compliment to my white does….. if i can get him to breed them!

Mr. Plumeria: Junior REW buck out of Crocus and Roger. Waiting to see how he does on the show table in Canby.

 Senior does:

IMG_2684Birdsong’s Crocus –  Legs of Grand Champion: 2 (Best of Variety) Crocus is a powerful doe out of Dandelion and Lilly (broken black doe). Nice, solid doe with a powerful front end and pretty good depth. Nice and wide, solid and a SWEETHEART temperament. She gets to stay on temperment alone and provides a classic line to offset the modern ‘basketball’ type.

 

 

Birdsong’s Junco (BR1)    (Best of Variety/FrozenFriends ’16). Really solid doe, slightly hollow in loin. Slower growth rate up front and caught up around 11 weeks. Muscular, great topline, shiny coat. Junco is out of my Bramble and Backyard Basic’s Raven (now deceased). Junco is the showgirl in my black line – really gorgeous and throws slick kits. A bit smaller than Marionberry’s line. *photograph as a junior

 

 

Birdsong’s Marionberry (BB1A)  Marionberry was a huge kit with an awesome growth rate. Out of Bramble and Blackberry. She’s lacking in depth but makes up for that with personality and mothering instincts and great width. She is an amazing mom and her kits have fantastic growth rate and improved depth thanks to Scotty. Marionberry’s dam was my most reliable breeder and it appears she passed her great mothering skills on!

 

 

IMG_6318Birdsong’s Boysenberry (SM1A): Smaller broken black doe out of Marionberry and Scotty. Boysenberry is a step on my way to better depth with Marionberry’s width. She’s a smaller doe but has fairly good type. 1 leg, BOV and Best Opp Variety. She one BOB (Best of Breed) at Canby  5/21/16

 

 

 

IMG_6315SCF Black Olive (SPA): A nice BIG boned doe out of Scotty and CFR Persimmons. Big doe, gorgeous chubby head. Olive has 1 leg for BOV.  Her first litter of babies is looking great!

 

 

 

 

IMG_2685SCF Daisy – REW Doe: A nice little white brood doe with ok confirmation that makes lots of meat for the freezer in large litters.

 

 

 

 

Not Shown:

Birdsong’s Aster:  REW doe out of Dandelion and Daisy. Smaller like Daisy, meaty like Dandelion. Has Daisy’s mothering skills and throws some excellent meat rabbits.

 

 

 

Up and Comers:

IMG_6191“Chickadee” out of Scotty and Junco

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_6193SP3a out of Scotty and Poppy

 

 

 

 

 

SM3A out of Scotty and Marionberry

2 Junior does set aside out of Scotty and Marionberry – 1 for sale $30 each

 

In the barn:

I retain most kits until 10-12 weeks in order to assess the ‘picks of the litter’ and ensure that I sell only quality stock as breeders/ potential show animals.  I often have a waiting list for my animals, so please contact me to let me know what you’re looking for. *Deposit required to reserve rabbits.

 

Please contact me with inquiries on current litters. My website updating skills have been lacking, so email is the best place to get the best/ most current information!

    Hi there,

    I saw your post on the Carnivore Feeders website and I am VERY interested in getting some of your whole rabbits. Is it possible to get the organs as well ? Do you keep the heads and ears attached or can I perhaps get the ears as well to air dry for treats ?

    I own a small raw business in San Marcos CA and we sell ground blends as well as air dried human grade treats. We recently started a second side of the business, no website yet, The Carnivore Bar for whole prey model feeders to buy at my bulk discount and have one stop shopping. =) I love your soaps as well and am interested in most everything you have to offer. Please let me know if I can get at least 6 rabbits…

    Respectfully,

    • Hi Lisa – I’d love to work with you, however i am unable to ship my rabbits. I see that you’re in California and as i’m in upper western Oregon, i think you might be better off finding a local supplier. I’m scaling back on my soaps, and i’m not sure i can offer a wholesale price as i’m already offering my products at a value. That being said – i’d be happy to discuss options with you.
