@Yorkshire coop I never realised that could happen 1 duck went Broody and the other 3 copy the other 3 are indian runners 🏃 and apparently it is rare for them to go broody.
Now they have all stopped laying so I'm waiting on duck eggs now lol 😁
Just popped in to report that Tasha's clutch are hatching as I type. There were 3 out when I last checked. Two welsummer/legbar crosses and a light sussex cross chick which is white so probably male, as it should be sex linked even though I am not sure which cockerel is the sire. No sign of the pekin clutch hatching yet though and they were set the same day.... but the two pekin broodies played musical nests and I think this nest was the least favourite, so may have got chilled. The other clutch hatched a few days ago and I got 6 pekins, 5 lavender and a black. All doing well so far and the 9 pekins from the first clutch that Frances hatched must be nearly 7 weeks now and roosting with the big girls on the high bars. Frances hasn't totally cast them off yet but they are pretty independent.
Congrats to Phil on his chicks.
GG you are a mean woman and a spoil sport! Poor ducks! Wouldn't blame them if they didn't lay for the rest of the season in protest! Rose West indeed! When the duck revolution comes, you will be first up against the wall!
