, but here they are. Sorry the pics are not that good I wanted to take a couple before it got dark outside. I will take some better ones to post later. I guess I am in need of a couple of ducks to go with my drakes. These boys are very small. The white call is 2 yo and the others are this years birds.

They're just starting to hatch so I'll let you know. All these ducks except my whites were hatched late last December and early this January. So they're ALL laying. Today my husband found about 30 eggs between all the Call pens! They're laying up a storm!

Awesome ! I had no idea they layed like that. I know muscovies lay throughout the year. I thought all other duck laid from Jan to April(aside from the egg layer ducks). I hope you have great success hatching them.
