    6 mixed ducklings in New Orleans

    We had an amazingly successful duckling hatch last week- so much so that we have more ducks than we need or want! The ducks are straight run (we’re not confident enough to try to sex them ourselves) and are a mix of mostly rouen and various runners. They hatched between 12/1-12/3 so they’re a...

    People Tampering With Birds in Transit-Stories and Photos?

    I haven’t really seen anything about this on BC but I’ve heard way too many stories about it. This year, in March, we ordered three ducklings to add to our existing flock of 14 ducks.

    My first hatch update/story

    hello everyone! I am happy to announce that my first hatch is nearly over! It has been a long and stressful road. From an unclear start date of natural incubation, to a finnicky and somewhat unreliable incubator and thermometer. To begin, I was unsure what the start date of incubation was. Mama...

    Do I need anything special to sell chicks I hatch in my area?

    Hello, I am wondering if I need a permit or something to sell chicks I hatch in my area? I am not worried about doing it once, but if I decided I wanted to do it as a small income, plus it would be fun, then do I need a legal permit or something? Mostly, because I REALLY want to hatch my own...
