The pics told the story beautifully. In spring I hatched a single call duckling from shipped eggs and she thought she was human for the longest time. I'm actually not sure if she knows she's fully duck yet. But she finally likes to go outside each day and visit the other ducks. There's progress but it's slow.

Thanks! There will be plenty more of Lacey duck to come :D. She did imprint, only got her a boyfriend as everyone said it would be cruel to keep her with hens only, but I knew I should of trusted my gut instinct as she was content with the chickens. But if I didnt get her a boyfriend she would have had her little babies! Yes it takes them, but think the penny finally drops lol

So how do you get a self black and a self chocolate. I have the EE gene for extended black but it always shows up with the bibbed gene. If I keep breeding will it eventually show up without the bibbed gene? I'm in Australia so just buying a self black isn't an option.

Unless your bibbed ducks are each carrying a recessive gene to produce self colored ducks, they will continue to produce bibbed ducks.    If both parents are heterozygous for bibbed,each duckling would have a 25% chance of being self colored.  

 

Yes, the easy, quick fix would be to add self colored ducks to your program.  Wish we could ship to Australia for you. 

 

Hope this helps.

Sadly that's what I thought. I'll keep looking maybe someone down here will come up with one...even if it's a platypus it'll still bring the gene to my flock.

@Johnn,  These are exceptional pictures and you are and exceptional photographer.  Composition is one of the most important parts of any photo and when capturing a duck, tongues are a key component of good composition!

Help! It's freezing out, the pond has a waterfall, so there are some holes in the otherwise inch thick ice. The calls keep going in there, and they are forming icicles on there rears when they come out. Is it dangerous?

no, my ducks swim year round without any problems. Maybe you could add a stock tank de-icer to their pool so it would stay unfrozen
