    A place called Lundi-farm, looks like a private breeder, formed by an animal feed company has hatchlings of torrent duck.
    Does anyone have any further information on this place?

    Have heared about it but never been. It's near Hannover and they seem to have a nice collection of rarely kept waterfowl. Next to the breeding results with Torrent ducks they also had the German / Europe (?) / World (?) first breeding with the Kelp goose.

    I thought Bill Parsonson in Los Angeles had the first Kelp Goose breeding?
    They may also have bred at Birdland here in the UK.

    Saw a nice serrie of photos of the Lundi Farm today. Impresive collection and on the pictures there were :
    Inca terns
    Steamer ducks
    2 subspecies of Torrent ducks
    Penguins ( still young so I can't tell the species )
    Grouse
    Capercaillie
    Saddle-billed stork
    Harlequin ducks ( a lot of them ! )
    Loads of other waterfowl...
