Thank you. For more recent pictures please check out my website, www.bluecreekaviaries.com, and like our Facebook page, as that is where I post pictures on a regular basis.

In regards to the swans, I am not sure. Hopefully someone comes along that knows about swans!

I definitely will check this out! I love wood ducks and I've never seen such a variety of them!

Ey Alex! Do you know if it's possible for call duck to cross w Laysan? My grey drake keeps trying but the Laysans are much more agile!

I would imagine that such a cross is possible, so I highly recommend that you separate the one pair or the other into a separate enclosure. The Laysan hen will be stressed by the call duck's advances, and this can compromise potential breeding success for the Laysan Teal. As a rule of thumb, it is a good idea to not keep domestic breeds with ornamental species.

How soon and by what means can you sex wood ducklings?

Ducklings can be vent sexed as early as when they have hatched and dried off. It depends on how comfortable you are with doing that and your ability to do so correctly. Practice really helps. If you do not want to vent sex them, then the other option is to wait for the ducklings to begin feathering in and visually sexing them. Drakes will have a prominent white crescent that resembles a mature drake in eclipse plumage.
