    Marigold and Cora

    I have been chickenless for quite a few years now. I went to visit my cousin this past week and saw the state he was keeping his birds in. He had two chicks in a guinea pig cage with a tarp halfway over it and a soaking wet towel in there. It has been raining for days straight! One of the chicks...

    At what age to neuter puppy?

    Dogs and cats can be spayed/neutered at either 8 weeks old or when they hit 2 pounds. Many vets like to wait until they are six months old. Personally, I'd get females done ASAP. I usually wait for male dogs to reach at least a year old. Just personal preference.

    How long will it take?

    I made the mistake of putting my couple day old babies in with 2 week olds. Lots of pecking and biting. They ended up killing one of the little ones but it only took a day or so before they're pecking order was established.

    I'm a grandma now!

    My muscovy Elvis is the daddy. I'm having issues with my uploader so pics will be slow to come. But I'm so anxious I had to share right away. Last night two little boogers hatched. They look just like little mallard babies. You can't tell but the two babies are under there. There were 7 eggs...

    I'm a new Ducky Mama!! Pics!

    Does TSC usually carry Runners? I haven't seen any there but the yellow with brown on their heads look very similar to my runner baby.

    Mallard vs Rouen ducklings

    Try different feed stores. I've been to quite a few recently and there are a lot of breeds that you cannot get at TSC.

    What ducks are more quiet than others?

    Muscovies are very quite. Awesome breed, my favorite. They are on the larger size but that adds to their awesomeness. lol

    What are these? Kind?

    I don't know... the black one in the bottom pic, in the far back, looks like a Swedish. The others? Mixed? I'm not to voiced in my duck breeds though.

    Swedish Ducks - Good Broodies?

    I've heard that mallards and muscovies are by far the best broody ducks. Mallards are my number one choice for broody mamas.

    more tsc ducklings - no, I didn't bring any home

    Last year my cousin got the only crested Swedish TSC had. I couldn't find anymore at any of the stores near me. I was upset. I'm on a mission to get my crested Swedish this year. So far, I haven't seen any Swedish at all. Just mallards.
