Just having a vent. I purchased 2 dozen "Black East Indie" hatching eggs. Out of those, I was blessed with 9 duckling last spring. Not great odds, but given I purchased from 2 different sources, and only one of those sources actually sent fertile eggs, I was impressed. Long story short, I have 2 full grown females. One was born completely lame so she is a house duck and lives with a blind silkie. She is spoiled and pampered, and what my son calls a "carry around duck" so the neighborhood kids love her. The other one lives happily with a trio of call ducks. However, here is where the major vent comes in. She is 3 times larger than the call ducks. I live in town and intentionally sought out the Black East Indies because they are a bantam breed. It is now clear, she is instead a Cayuga. Because she is much bigger than the other ducks, she is often left behind and picked on. I don't know if I should find her a mate or a new home. She isn't a problem, but she is lonely. They must see me coming, I swear. I now also have a newly crowing Chocolate Orpington pullet, a newly crowing blue splash Cochin pullet, and a white face black spanish that was supposed to be a Sumatra. Supposedly sexed but they were too young to tell by looking when I got them. Ok so that isn't a 100% guarantee, but the Sumatra?? Really? I think I am going to stick with hatchery chicks from now on. blah!
