Hello! my ducks are getting really close to 6 months! i also think on is a male ;-P I have one duck house with wood inserts inside and three holes so they can nest individually. they have been hanging out in there. so thats exciting. but i was hoping you all could tell me how long did it take for your ducks to start hatching? what can I do to encourage this? And how clean or how often do you clean there house. (i noticed they are in there more now that they have their own rooms but they are pooping more ;-P) just clean as needed? how do you clean your eggs? can any recommend a good duck/egg book?
