    Runner Duck Egg Incubation

    I read on a site to stop turning runner duck eggs at day 23, and another site said to stop at 25. I also see varying info on temp and RH during later stages of incubating. Can someone please help clarify what is the proper info? I have 7 eggs currently incubating (on day 12), 99.5 degrees, 69%...

    My FEMALE duck has grown a MALE tail curl!

    As the title says, my female duck has just grown a curly tail feather like all drakes have! I know that she is female because of her deep quack and most of all I have seen her lay an egg with my own eyes. When it first began growing I thought maybe it was just an out of place feather but today...

    How to determine who is laying?

    Hello again I'm back at it with my wacky questions! So I have 4 ducks, a runner, silver appleyard, muscovy, and magpie/pekin (we think?), how can I tell who is laying based on behavior or looks rather than picking them up and feeling pelvic bones? I don't like to have to chase after them and...

    Magpie? Swedish? Mystery duck

    Hi all! So a month or so back I got this girl from someone and they claimed she was magpie but I think she looks swedish.

    Eating my ducks eggs?!

    one of my ducks has recently just started laying eggs. However for a while they were indoors and are now outside and so have not wormed them yet! I was just wondering if it is still safe to eat the eggs if my duck has not been wormed yet or should I wait until after they have been wormed? I have...

    Hey there, my duck Lillian is expecting to hatch two babies . She's taking great care of her eggs, and as far as I can tell, the ducklings are in perfect health. My only question Is "When will she become a mother?!" I've been candling the eggs daily, but for some reason I cannot tell which...

    Mating, But No Eggs

    My Runner drake has been mounting with Pekin duck, who is a willing and bossy partner, but it's been more than two weeks and I haven't found a single egg. Is it possible that he's just matured faster than she has? Or should I be concerned about her?

    Please help identify my duckling breeds!

    I recently purchased some ducklings from tractor supply. They were unable to tell me anything about their breed. I suspect that the dark colored ones are some sort of runner duck because of their upright stance? The yellow ones all look a bit different however. I would love help in knowing what...
