    Saxony Duck Thread!

    Yeah this is her before the molt, and she still quacks. I’d like to vent sex to see if there’s male anatomy.

    This is a good point, my ducks bully the turkeys.

    Just Out of Curiosity...

    Yes, but be wary of doing so with drakes. Drakes + chicken hens are not a good combination when mating season rolls around.

    The Float Test on Duck Eggs?

    It should work with duck eggs. I haven’t done it in a while, but if it floats, it’s a witch.

    Saxony Duck Thread!

    Hi guys! It’s been a while! I wanted to share an update on my saxonies. I hatched several ducklings out this spring and ended up with one that quacks but came out of her molt with drake coloring and a sex feather. I’ll try to find the video I took last month of ‘her’ quacking it’s so bizarre.

    I’ve been busy! But hoping to make some time for the forum now that we’re going into winter.

    Saxony hens - southern New England

    I’ve got a few more pet quality saxony hens than I need. Not yet laying but should start in spring or sooner if you supplement light. One from Holderread this spring, the others hatched from my own flock. Two, maybe three available.

    Injured duck - Leg Was Tied - Photo attached

    Sadly, no. I suppose it's possible that there was a puncture wound that I didn't find when cleaning her. I kept the one I knew about clean, but if there was another one it could have gotten infected. That may explain why she seemed okay for a few weeks then suddenly went downhill. Thank you...

    Injured duck - Leg Was Tied - Photo attached

    Got home and marched out to the coop with gloves on and a bottle of lube, only to find homegirl chilling under the adarodnack chair like nothing was wrong. Found an egg in the yard near where I set her up for the day. She doesn't seem to be quite herself and refused peas, though she is...

    Injured duck - Leg Was Tied - Photo attached

    This afternoon I called the ducks and all but one came for their dinner. I went out looking and found her a 1/4 mi down stream playing opposum in a thicket by the shore. Amazingly she's okay. When I came in behind her she scared the crap outta me because I thought she was dead. She took off...

    Saxony Duck Thread!

    Well you can see formation at about a week but it's just veins and a heartbeat. I don't think I've been able to see much after day 21, but up until then there's movement all along the way.

    Hello fellow duck lover! Generally, mom will take care of everyone just fine, but I'd separate them in the run if possible. Drakes can be bad, and spontaneous about it too. I had one last year who would actually protect the babies from me then turn around and try to kill them.
