I purchased these ducks from a florida breeder as Buff. I posted in another thread and someone said they were Saxony and not Orpingtons. I would appreciate input from those more knowledgeable than myself. They are not from a mixed flock of ducks. This is the only breed of ducks the breeder has other than Cayuga, which is separated out. All pictures and information I gathered is in my Album Buff Ducks. I can't seem to upload a pic on this post. This is so sad. I can stand behind my Pekin and Cayugas purity 100%. These ducks are beautiful, docile and lay like crazy. I don't think I will part with them. I will offer them as mixed ducks instead. To The Duck ABC's, you are correct. Most of my ducks have just started laying regularly. Prior to that, I ran my flock all together and used the eggs for consumption. I retired in August and decided to turn a hobby into a supplement to my retirement. I will back up and regroup. I will purchase ducks from a reputable breeder and be able to stand behind their purity 100%. I am a completely honest, forthright person and do not want to ruin my reputation before I have a chance to establish one. I really appreciate the input and help each of you have offered. It really takes a load off my mind, even though they are mutt ducks.
