    here is the latest addition. hatched on wednesday the 27th. i got these through Ideal in TX. i had a runner that didnt make it and 2 chicks that didnt make it thru the day:hit i checked the invoice and everything looked right. Then I started checking out the chicks and they sub a few colors. i'm not really sure what chicks i lost, maybe some of you chickie experts can help. Here is what I have for sure. 2 mallards and a fawn and white runner,
    1 white frizzle, 1 black frizzle, 1 white silkie, 1 buff laced polish, 1 golden laced polish, 1 turken(color unknown), 2 silkies (colors belived to be red and partridge) and 2 that could be either a cochin (partridge or goldenlaced) and a milli fleur'd uccle but i dont know which is which and what exactly i lost.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Also, can anyone tell me if the striped silkies are really red and partridge and what color my turken will be. all of these are new breed to me except for the polish. thanks a bunch.

    Love those Ducklings!!!! Could they be any cuter? Newbie question though, what is the purpose of raising ducks? I know chickens lay eggs. Does one eat duck eggs? Can they live with chickens? Just asking cause they are just so cute.
