    Devastating news from the doc: My leg muscle is ruptured and inflamed and i must not put any weight on my leg for the next two weeks! Not sure if i am able to set up a brooder during that time. Must wait longer for duckies… :hit

    There is actually a farm in Humble, Texas (http://oldmacdonaldshumble.com/) where kids can feed the animals, including a large flock of ducks - all different breeds and hybrids.

    As if i am not already confused enough! :barnie
    My (current) spreadsheet states:
    • 5 Indian Runners, 2 boys 3 girls
    • 5 Golden/White Layer Hybrids, all girls
    • 5 Magpie Ducks 1 boy 4 girls
    • 5 Buff Orpington, 1 boy 4 girls
    • 5 Ancona Ducks, all girls
    Makes a total of 25 Duckies, 21 girls, four boys, ratio 1:5.25, all light/medium breeds
    Lot's of eggs, i may bake the world's largest Duck-Omelet
    Or i could get 5 Golden Layers and 5 additional Duclair's…
    But then there the beautiful heavy breeds: Cayuga, Rouen, Silver Appleyard…
    And the cute call ducks!
    And i also wanted to have Dutch Hookbills…
    Life before ducks was so simple!!!
    :idunno:th:barnie ;)

    It was at that farm, i learned that bread is bad for ducks! They were selling small bags of treats for the birds, pellets, crickets meal-worms and both, the ducks as well as the kids were happy. Not so the parents, seeing their kids touch "dirty" bugs… :lau

    I thought about having three Golden and two White Layers first, all girls, to relax the tensions between my two drakes somewhat. Maybe i should stick to that original plan…

    I do have too much time and too much Cabin-Fever! I want to be out there and cuddle my Duckies!
    As said, i won't be even able to build a Duckarium (brooder) in my office right now…

    I'm so sorry for you - what a horrible amount of time to be 'down' - and you don't seem like the stay-still type ;)

    I can stay still for a while, but after three weeks my legs start to itch! At least i can take a shower today, had to wait three days after the doc pulled out the Nylon.
