I looooove ducklings... this is the first duckling I've ever had/held/hatched. So exciting!
Congrats! Ducklings are soooo cute it's tempting to hatch one just to have a baby duck for a while.

Have you checked with Dheltzel? He has a good variety.

I had a coon kill 11 of my chickens in the middle of all of this party stuff !! Boys was I ******! So I had to move them to the main coop. It was my banties and momma silkies with 4 babies just born the day before. They are all safe now! Think I might put concert inside and out of the walls so I'm sure they are good! I will be getting more but not sure when!
Hope everyone is doing good!
So sorry for your loss! That's a lot of birds to get taken and I'm sure there were some of your favorites.

If Pete is a girl too and you need a rooster, I'm sure someone close to you will hook you up with one.
That's crazy! 10 out of 11!? Have you slowed down your hatching a bit now? I imagine the worst Rush is over for people wanting chicks.
Very cool Aurora! Looks like they are doing well.
