    Celticoaksfarm is on the east coast in central Florida. She has very nice silver appleyards among other breeds.

    We are near the space center and have hatches for the next couple of weeks already set.

    In the bator hatching now:

    Khaki Cambells

    Silver Appleyards

    Buff

    Rouen

    Both the buff and Rouen flocks were sold, so these are the last of their fertile eggs to be set.

    We also have black & white Mascovy set, plus more rounds of Khaki and silver Appleyards.

    Khaki are an egg duck
    Silver Appleyards are a large duck bred for meat production and are very calm and slow
    Buffs are an egg production duck
    Rouens are bred for meat production and are larger in size.

    I just got 2 from our local tractor supply store. They are really friendly and healthy and they seem to think I am their mother lol.

    Try and get them off the wire, it can and will create sores on their feet. Straw, hay, pellet bedding or shaving (not cedar) even towels work well. Very cute, enjoy them.
