    I know this is a forum for chickens, but I have also browsed the duck threads too, and have decided to say hello.
    I have six Welsh Harlequin eggs (all internally pipped!) and three are working on hatching. Very excited to be a duck mom!!
    Besides the ducklings, I also have two drakes, Aflac (buff Orpington) and Halfrac (Swedish blue), and a mixed breed Toulouse gander named Yeezma who I adore and dote on.
    I love my dumb birds, and am very excited about these babies. I've never hatched eggs before, so I'm an anxious mess right now lol.
    I hope to have chickens in the coming months as well, but I've never had much luck with them.
    Cheers to fowl everywhere.

    Don't worry about not having chickens to fit in...we're equal opportunity poultry lovers! Best of luck with your hatch, there's nothing much cuter than ducklings.
