    Okay -

    First, we thought we had 2 female pekin dusks: Emma & Sarah. But now at 5 months old, Emma started to get a curled tail feather and a lower quack so then we had James & Sarah. Well, yesterday we got our first egg! Yippee! Then this morning we opened up to see if we got a second egg and found James was sitting on an egg in the nesting box!

    Are we totally confused about gender or will a James sit on an egg laid by Sarah?
