    I am going to try and post a picture of my girls. I have them in with my (I think) kakhi drake. Since Geronimo was the smallest of my 6 drakes I ended up with. I put him with the girls. The girls were born I think sometime in may. Still no eggs. To me they look so small. I wanted to try and breed one of them with one of my welsh harlequins, but the welsh harlequins look humongous, compared to the girls. Anyway, can anyone tell me what mix my girls are?

    I hatched some ducks in my classroom last spring. I got the eggs from a woman who had Cayuga, Black Swedish, and Runners free ranging. I think the ducklings may have been from the Black Swedish they looked like this. The one on the right looks a little like this one. Maybe black or blue Swedish. I am new to the world of ducks though, maybe others will have a better idea.

    Quote:Agreed! The Ancona could be an early Magpie / Runner . MIne look exactly like that ( seeing as that cross is the origin of the Ancona), Im going to breed them in summer to see if I can get some "pure" anconas after a few generations.

    SO Pretty!! My cayuga is a hatchery hen, and has no irridescense what so ever. SHe is a little pessemistic thing though, always having a problem with someone ( If i spelled something wrong, excuse it, lol )
