    Very cute and hugely adorable. Plus up to all kinds of mischief at this age.

    We did look into how mch it would cost to get in eggs. If you discount the cost of getting the eggs and the fact that they have to come from a quarentined flock that has been tested for the avian influenza antibodies, if you got 1000 eggs they would cost you about 250 dollars each minimum.

    happy to know that the cuteness and mischievousness is plentiful. That's a huge amount of money. Geez.

    its a color for a call duck, but other mini apple yards are literally minature bantam apple yard ducks.

    Really? I've never heard of an appleyard call duck. It's either a miniature appleyard...or a call duck. :p You sure you don't mean snowy or dusky calls? They kinda look appleyard-ish.

    You can get calls in pretty much any color...but they may not have the best body/bill depending on origin source & generations into the color.
