    This is an interesting idea. Has anybody recorded their ducklings growth like that?

    I keep meaning to do this with my ducks and chickens, but never seem to manage to pull it off. They grow up sooooo fast in the scheme of things. Besides the physical changes the color transformations are also quite interesting.

    I have mine posted on my BYC page just click on it under my name.

    The pics are of them up to around 10 weeks I think, at 12 weeks my drake got his drake feather on. But by them my female was quacking. You will be able to tell by there voices first. Males are raspy and females make the quack noise.

    As its my first year breeding my own Runners I have been taking lots of pics recording for colour for reference in the future. But since some of mine are still so young..I only have baby shots of most of them.
