    So my mallard colored call has eggs hatching

    So far she is at twelve and it seems like she has more eggs under her. Clever girl I could have sworn she only had ten eggs.

    So far it looks like I'm going to get some more mallards hopefully with their mums dusky gene. Maybe a coupe of blue fawn and possibly a buff. There's one or two in there whose colors I'm not sure on. Seems like there always is no matter how many ducklings we hatch

    I try to leave them alone with mum for the first 24 hours to bond before I go touching them. But when they've had time to bond I will be cuddling them all

    I ordered mine for 80 dollars, but these are duckling and not promised show quality level, although thy come from lines of show quality. I'm getting 5 by the way so16 dollars a duckling ( if that helps at all )

    She is a show quality call. I believe in the states you call the color grey. In Australia she is colored dusky mallard.

    She ended up with sixteen babies I have no idea where she was hiding the eggs she must have had them stacked.

    I don't sell my babies until they are a couple of months old that way I know what quality I'm selling as well as colors. Rare colored show quality females sell for around $80 each uncommon colored show quality $60 common colored show quality females $50. All show quality males are $50. Pet quality ducks sell $40 a pair or $30 females and $10 males. Those prices are pretty standard around here.
