Oh no! My duck math was off by one...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I decided to add another wonderful duck to my flock.  I was finally able to justify it - I have a family that is buying all of my extra eggs, today she bought 9 dozen and said to let her know when I had more!  Wow!  I have never before seen someone so excited for a duck egg.  She had called her entire extended family, and is splitting the eggs among them.  The money I make from selling their eggs more than pays for food and bedding for the entire flock.  Win win!  I decided to add a sweet girl named Ping to my flock.  She is a beautiful Blue Swedish.  She is the same age as my other laying ducks, so I hope they all get along well.  I will take some pictures tomorrow, she is so pretty! 

 

Can I just add - when this all started this spring, I told my husband I wanted just two ducks.  Then I thought four would be nice.  I got five.  Now I have seven.  Tell me, will it continue?  :D

Lol. I'm in the same boat. We got 5 Ancona ducklings in April and then just got 2 Indian runners and 2 white layers 2 weeks ago. I think we are maxed on space unless we get another coop. Other wise I could see more and more!

It's hard to say no, isn't it?  I've rescued a few drakes, but I knew I couldn't keep them so it wasn't as hard to find them a new home.  It's hard to say no to a duck though, it's hard to come up with a reason not to keep them :)
