    Another TSC duckling ID thread

    Pretty sure the grey ones are runners because of how they stand. And probably chocolate. I can hear the beginnings of quacks from 4 of them. I’ve known the Welsh are females based on their pink bills as hatchlings. The Appleyard’s voice has been cracking very obviously before every peep for a...

    Now what to expect?

    I mean, unless you want her to be a house duck and bring her to food and water several times a day... Those things are manageable when she’s a baby but it will be more labor intensive and what life is that for her really? Its easier for her to make a close bond with another duck from an early...

    Now what to expect?

    She needs a friend. Being able to hear and follow another duck to food and water will really help her live a relatively normal life.

    I was kind of waiting until the girls start quacking to name them. My kids named our buff Clancy and the rouen is Rhonda. Seeing if I can imprint them. The appleyard still had an egg tooth yesterday. Like my ducklace? Lol

    That’s kind of what I was thinking but has anyone ever got WH from Tractor Supply? They get their chicks from Hoover Hatchery and I assumed they ordered the Mixed Ducklings. I see Swedish on the list of what could be there, but not Welsh.

    I bought some new ducklings today. We have a Buff and a Rouen hen from Spring chick days. We lost the 2 male runners the day after it ended so I promised my boys I would replace them next time I found ducks and ended up buying 5 :rolleyes: I think the yellow with the black tail and a spot on...

    Wyoming Unite!!!!

    Hello everyone! I'm in Afton but will be moving to Casper soon. Are snakes a problem there? I was told that Muscovies can help in areas where snakes are a problem so if they are, anyone nearby sell them/eggs?

    Lucky frickin chicken. I have decided that poor Sheila the Australorp is either an accident waiting to happen or an extremely lucky chicken. She's the one that I saved as a chick when I found her choking on a mouthful of chick starter. I noticed her getting weak and found a spongey mass of...

    I found my rooster frozen under the coop last night when I went to put everybody in. He was fine an hour earlier. The thermometer in my Jeep said -26 this morning and there's still school. Glad I'm homeschooling, I do NOT want to be out there longer than I have to!

    Oooo. I think i'll wait until spring to do more chicks, but those do sound like something I would like.

    Idaho?

    Lol, thanks but I got rid of the silky rooster because he was a rooster. At least with chicks there's a chance I'd end up with a hen.

    Idaho?

    No idea what an SBEL is lol. I got a BSL hen, a Silky rooster, and a Millie Fluer D'Uccle Rooster off of Misty's list so will hopefully be hatching some fun color babies from my EE girls and the MF if they ever start laying. The MF and Silky were getting into endless crowing competitions so I...

    NEW What Ya Got Swap! Please see post #1 for rules!

    I can't think of anything else I own that I want to get rid of that won't cost a fortune to ship. No hatching eggs. Neighbor kid jumped the fence to get a frisbee and collapsed my old coop on the ones that were close to laying so I haven't even got eggs to eat yet. :/
