    I found these little ducks while surfing the web. Does anyone have these? Holderread sells them, so it isn't a fluke! They are tiny little fluffy ducks that don't fly! I am in LOOOOVE! I'm wondering about how loud they are. It says they are both good layers AND good mothers! ME WANT!

    I used to have them...but I had hardiness issues with him and they didn't lay very well. They're not as silky as like a silkie chicken...just a little fluffy. Mine were about as loud as Calls and kind of skiddish but not too bad. I'd really like to try them again or maybe get some BEI's--since I think those are BEAUTIMUS! [​IMG]

    ugh. ok, love affair is dead [​IMG] Can't do loud here. Rules in my hood say we can only have dogs and cats, so loud wouldn't swing. Maybe I'll think about getting some different types of boys though...[​IMG]
