Male Juvenile 6-8 months old (Flying)
The Mandarin is both sociable and beautiful, making it the perfect duck for any collector’s pond. These birds mix quite well with other waterfowl. They require a minimum of 8 inches to a foot of water. Mandarins are omnivorous, and love to find snails, bugs, even small fish in their enclosures! Captivity diet will mainly consist of game bird pellet, along with plenty of greens or grass.
Our Mandarins are not pinioned. Wing clippings are available at an additional $2.50 per bird, and the trimming can last for 4-6 months.
