Well, I have had ducks before but always ones I hatched out in the incubator. I took the plunge (so to speak lol) and ordered some ducklings from Murray McMurray for June. I went with four blue runners (one drake three hens), four fawn and white runners (one drake, three hens) and three crested whites (one drake, two hens.) Yes, I have either owned these breeds in the past or done my research. I am excited!!! I will be spending these next three months getting everything ready for them. I was also interested in buying call ducklings or buying call duck eggs but they didn't have those. I did post on here as well, but if anyone knows where I can buy even a few eggs to have shipped, it would be greatly appreciated, as I want to give it a try, I have read and read and read some more about the pitfalls of incubating call ducks so I am hoping if I take it step by step, it will equal success. If not, I will try again. Also, I do not plan on keeping the standards and calls together, I would rather be safe than sorry. I am basically wanting my ducks for pets and eggs. My daughter and 4 year old grandson are on board, especially my grandson. My daughter has been telling him how when she was growing up and I had an incubator going how excited she would be and would shine the flashlight into the incubator every time she went by. I have already told them they can help name the ducks.
