    KC/Cayuga Hatching Adventure

    I'll be buying 12 KC/Cayuga hatching eggs to put underneath our broody hen on Monday. The lady has both breed drakes with the ducks so I could have mostly mixed with possibly pure. Probably all mixed but it doesn't matter to me as I will be selling all ducklings a few days after they hatch...

    I have 4 hens, all about two years old; two Buff Orpingtons and two Blacked-Barred Rocks. They are all quite sweet and get along great. One of my Orpingtons goes broody very easily and will not be deterred. Last year was my first year experiencing this and with a lot of constant interaction...
