Love your flock!
The Kahki Campbell is what we wanted, turns out the lady at Bomgaars sold us Blue Swedish Ducks. And instead of 2 hens, we have a hen and a drake. So not really an egg breed, but not all is lost. I see trying to hatch duck eggs next spring adn early summer...Why not??
I've never had chickens and ducks at the same time...this has been a real learning curve for me. I have a pullet that identifies more with the ducks than the other pullets. She eats with them and sleeps with them and when they are splashing in the water, she stands right there with them. I need to get a photo of that some day...it's pretty funny to see.
But its been alot of fun for the family. My kids enjoy the poultry, they've never had those experiences and I'm glad that they get to have them now.
