    Hey all! I've been lurking for a while now, and decided to get in on the action! We are anxiously awaiting our arrival of our first hatching eggs! We've ordered 5 each of Blue Swedish, Cayuga, and Rouen. Anyone want to weigh in on their favorite of the three, along with any breed quirks or traits we should be aware of. :) We can't wait, put our order in to Metzer Farms the end of last week hoping they'd make it Saturday. Unfortunately they didn't and now its a holiday. Poor babes out in the world all alone!!![​IMG]

    Darn holiday weekend! I hope they arrive safely. I had a couple of Blue Swedish ducks who were really cute

    Congrats on the new babies, I hope they arrive alright. As for fave breed I dont have experience with these breeds but I do have a rouen/jumbo pekin mix and he's pretty cool. I do like the looks of the Cayuga.

    I have all three breeds and I love my Swedish because they seem to be the most friendly, the cayugas because they are the quietest females I have and the Rouens because they just come barreling in to join the fun! All 3 are great duck breeds but all different!

    They're here! Just letting them regain their composure before they begin incubating. :)[​IMG]

    good luck incubating! I got mine from the same place and 16 of 20 hatched and lived! The other 4 died in the last week of hatching - only 1 bad air cell in the end.
