so I ordered call duck eggs from NY in January and arrived in Alabama in a freak ice storm. And did i mention it was the first time I've ever even looked at an incubator--thank you neighbor! Anyhoo, I have 2 beautiful and very clever youngsters. one is a pied female, PIPER. She's very loud and thinks highly of herself and full of personality. I love her. The male is IDK, a snowy mallard, mini appleyard cross?? He's got a green thing going on on his head. He's quite lovely and follows Piper around like she's a little queen. i guess he needs a name too....but more importantly, is he a mix or something else? He's really pretty too. Both just love it when I bring new baby runners out. They want to investigate and peck them. I even saw the young male bird dominate the adult runner female--go figure.
