I think I read in a journal they were lost about 12-15 years ago and the blood is so polluted they are now considered the farm duck only

I was afraid that was the case and today the 2 top waterfowl breeders also confirmed what you wrote here, DAM, what a shame we messed them up so badly.

Thanks for the message I can't reply? but its exciting to read

It would be good if they were still around it would be good to know there is 1 person with pure ones
