Not very acquainted with ducks but it must be very different when you personally hatch them compared to big hatcheries. It's still very warm here in central/south Texas, I've been getting decent amount of eggs from the other girls I have. Thank you and good luck with yours too!
TSC always messing up the breeds 🙄. Hey but on the bright side leghorns are really good producers of white eggs! I was anxiously waiting on my Sicilian buttercup to lay some white eggs but she was taken by a predator 😔

Edited to clarify that I bought 6 the day before I bought the chickens in question back in April.

Hello, new here. I've been lurking for a few months but decided its finally time I posted something. This year I started with 9 chicks from TSC and regrettably can't remember what the 5 pullet breeds I bought were. I've been looking online and I've come up with 3 similar looking breeds and have...
