    I keep my Indies Seperated during Breeding season.
    Also My Birds are good Quality, You could get Show Potential offspring.


    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!

    Oh those are absolutely gorgeous. I don't know anything about incubating duck eggs. Maybe next time I get a broody I will have to try them. Not sure about putting them in an incubator. Probably would not do very well since I am so inexpreienced. They are beautiful though.

    Mary - I personally would not incubate these eggs with chicken eggs.

    You need to have a higher moisture level than chicken eggs and they also take 28 days to hatch NOT 21.

    Please post your progress in the incubating and hatching section..

    There are a few duck people on here that will be glad to guide you.. :)

    Are any of the Black East Indies eggs still available? I might want some. I presently have Cayugas, Blue Swedes, and Mandarins. They are all running together in the same pen.I have a batch of eggs arriving next week to go in the bator...if you have them still, how much would 6+ be shipped?
