    How cute. She and crash just hatched some lings, correct?

    Sorry for the photo-invasion of your thread...



    Occasionally I will sell/ship eggs, but I won't ever ship day old 'lings... I just feel they are way too tiny and fragile at that point...

    They sure do... lots of accepted colors and many, many more that aren't... I have tons of pics on my thread if you wish to look... I also posted pics of the accepted color posters... somewhere on there, lol...

    Oh I Love Lady Grey! So cute! My 'lings from this year (MoonMoon the magpie and Harmony the rare chocolate Orpington you may know, along with the 2 runners CharlotteLucaya and Pheobe) just moved outside to a bigger brooder :( I miss them inside already, even though they smelled :) at least they have more space, the inside brooder MoonMoon couldn't even stand up. I've noticed that since I took them out everyday and kept them in the kitchen they are super friendly they snuggle right up to me :) and they let me pet them and they'll come when called and follow me around the yard. Last year my lings were kept outside since they were born and they aren't so friendly. My others from shelters are pretty nice though.

    Just so y'all know, my 'lings LOVE honeydew and celery leaves, so there are a few treats to give them when yours are older Banti!

    Ack!! The skin on my duckling's legs is peeling! What am I doing wrong??
    They are eating chick starter, until I go into town and get them some correct food but this isn't that far off. Could a nutrient deficency be causing this? Will they be okay? :fl
