Hi i was wanting to try and hatch some duck eggs but have a few question first. Are they hard to hatch? How long do they take to hatch? Can i incubate them with chicken eggs? And do you accept cash? Thanks for the info

Fluffs and stuff wish I could have ducks
but my mom has a grudge
against waterfowl beacause they are considerably messier then my chickens. I applaud you for describing your birds the way you did "you could get show potential offspring" that is a great way to word !!!!!!! Thanks for not saying show quality although I am sure many people will get many "show potential" offspring from these stunningly beautiful ducks

Thanks,
Henry

No they are not Call Ducks

A very distinctive feature of the Black East Indies is the iridescent green sheen in their black feathers.
The flashing iridescent color really shows up in the sunshine. Its feathers are very soft to the touch. Indies are Bantam ducks weighing about 2.5 pounds as adults they are approximately the same size as the Call ducks. Their legs and neck are a little bit longer and its body shape is a little more streamlined. They remind me of the much larger Cayuga Duck. There should be no brown or purple in the plumage of an Indie duck. White can develop in some of the older ducks especially the females. This is considered a disqualification in show birds but most people show their younger stock anyway. Their legs, feet and bills should be black and as with the Calls their legs should be placed so that the duck stands level. BEI females have a loud quack but not quite as loud as the Calls. We love having these birds as pets and I am sure you will to if you decide to get some. There are advantages to having bantam ducks, ie: small ducks, small mess, big ducks, big mess. Another comparison is to the size of a Cayuga that averages 8 pounds. That means you can have three BEI for the same amount of food consumption and housing space. You do not need a large pond for them to be happy. A small plastic kids pool or one of the small plastic ponds from a garden center works well. Our ducks love them!
