    I have a four acre farm. I bought five golden cascades from the local feed store. I now have four (one died in her sleep... [​IMG] )

    I've got two drakes, and two ducks/hens.

    Any personality traits I should look for in the Golden Cascades? Laying patterns? Broody patterns? Maternal instinct? etc, etc.

    They are very beautiful in their colour though! Great markings!

    Thanks for the help. I'm just so happy to finally figure out what breed they are - just the problem is that they seem rare, and not too much information on them.

    When I got them at the feed store the gal said they were just "white ducks" - I think somehow I got the four Golden Cascades; cause the rest were Pekins! (including the one I lost [​IMG] )

    I feel blessed to have such beautiful waterfowl on my farm!
