    We are very new to raising any type of poultry. We have finished our first attempt at a house for ducks.
    Please see my "Duck House" page for a couple pics.
    Here are a couple pictures of the six ducks we got from Meyer Hatchery on 3-2-11.
    We got 2 females of each; Cayuga, Blue Swedish, and Welsh Harlequin.

    After 2 weeks they seemed to have nearly quadrupled in size.

    At around 3 weeks of age and starting to develop some feathers.

    Here is a later picture taken within the last few days. We did add 2 Rouens.

    I just placed an order for ducklings from Holderreads Waterfowl Farm to be delivered in June.
    I hope to get: Dutch Hookbills, Saxony, Magpie, more Cayuga, and more Welsh Harlequin. Duck math is killing me.

    We got the Holderread ducklings - see the 'Holderread Ducklings' page
