I've ordered some ducklings from McMurray hatchery and I thought I would try a few of the Gold Star Hybrids ducks they have. Part of the reason I am ordering is because I'd like mroe duck eggs but does anyone know anything about these birds? I've only ordered females and from what I read they are probably indistinguishable from KC hens. Does anyone know what breeds go into making these birds. McMurray's website says they won't breed true in future generations. Other hatchery's seem to carry the same exact duck though. Metzer calls it the Golden 300 Hybrid. I'm sure they lay a few more eggs than say, a KC does but I wonder if it's just a ploy to get you to part with a tiny bit more of your money since they cost a bit more than other breeds.
