    So lovely to read the stories! I saved a duck once with a broken wing, it ended up being amputated but she survived 3 surgeries to get there and she didnt even weigh 2kg! That was Talli, Named for 'Taleisin' in the Avalon series. A male name, because I thought she was male, shortened to Talli once I knew she was female. She was a pacific black who looked a lot like my drake.

    My drake is in my avatar and his name is Wist. Named for a female dragon in the book 'DragonFlame' by Graham Edwards. Couldnt change it. He likes it, hes a bit girly! Pictured with him is his favourite female Varia, named for the amazon queen in Xena.

    Wist with Ephinny and Syanne, also named for amazon queens in Xena. I named all the pekin/ pekin crosses for amazon queens because they are 4 times the size of Wist! Also pictured chicken Sheena, jungle queen.

    The one on the left looks like a pekin (aflac duck). Not sure about the right.

    The dark brown ones are almost definitely Khaki Campbells. Rouen ducklings have yellow on their body and face.

    Before I got her, I had two dreams in which I was calling out, "Jupiter" to a pet goose. Even though it's associated with the Roman God of Gods, I decided it works for both genders.

    This is her at 6 days old. She's 10 days old today.
