As of right now, I have one Cayuga named Annaliese.  All the other ducks are named Duck, and all the Drakes are named Jake.   Makes life simpler for me tongue.png

I have  Po my Pekin - she is 6 weeks old

Chip and Jet are my daughter's 5 weeks old Mallards

Donald, Zues, Posiedon, Athena, and Aries are the 3 week old Mallards

 

I originally got my chicks in Feb, but after one trip the TSC I picked up a pair of Pekins. One sadly died but I still have Po. We just love these ducks even DH got addicted and thats how we ended up with the 5 babies. Po is the guard duck lol, she warns everyone even the chickens when there is anything amiss. Jet and Chip are like mothers to the 5 babies, they babies follow them everywhere.

Nicolette and Eva: Rouen females about 4? weeks in this picture. They have most of their feathers now.

Ping and Ling: Fawn and White Indian Runners, about 4 weeks in this picture. They are getting their fawn feathers in now.

Lizzie: Khaki Campbell female, about 4 weeks in this picture. She has a lot more of her feathers now and is going to be a beautiful duck. I had another Khaki named Jane but she was beating everyone up so she went to another home.

This picture was taken yesterday. They are all approximately 2 weeks old.

Ming and Ting: Blue Indian Runners

Charlotte: Khaki Campbell

Marina and Greta: Embden goslings

I thought that the ducklings were the cutest thing ever until we got these goslings. We have been handling them a lot so they will be friendlier as adults. If I had a bigger property I would definitely get some more.

 

The older ducklings are all around 6 weeks now, I just haven't gotten more pictures. The weather hasn't been great lately, in fact they went for a swim in a pool in my kitchen yesterday. lol.png

Well, here is Lucky the Duck.  My students (K-2nd) named him that because:

#1-only sticking 1 duck egg into an incubator full of chicken eggs was a low probability of hatching

#2- it pipped for 3 days before this mama duck got nervous and helped preform a c-section (peel, spritz, peel, spritz, for HOURS!),

#3- it had a splay right leg, which is now wonderfully splinted with a Strawberry Shortcake Bandaid (thank you BYC forum!), and

#4- his eye and nostril were weeping, leading me to believe he was a gonner...again thank you BYC for advice!

 

I am guessing he/she is a Blue Swedish Duck.....totally a guess!

 

Lucky almost 1 day old.                                                               Ugly left eye on Monday- 2 days old

Lucky out for a stroll at 3 days.         I took Lucky to the vet to show off his healed eye (due to head dunking) and his (her) sweet hobble!

Hatched 13 chickens at school on 4/11.....assisted 1 duck to hatch on 4/15!   Chicks go to a ranch on 4/18.....the duckling?  He/She will be sticking around until I am comfortable letting him go.  He will be in a hobble for another week.  :)  I'm enjoying this whole process!

 

Oh yeah, expecting our first child 7/28!  :)  So, these feathered babies are getting me practiced up!

Recently 3 very unusual ducks appeared in my back yard, they are absolutely beautiful and I have no idea what breed/species they are.  Looking for someone that might know something about them.

Their breast, back, neck and head are a cinnamon color.  Their face, front and side neck are tan and as smooth as skin.  The wings are white underneth and on the outside they have a white stripe followed by a dark blue ( almost black ) patch that I am not sure if it is part of the wing or the belly, They  also have a very vibrant orange beak.Would love to see if anyone can identify them or give me any information they may have on this most beautiful bird.700
