    In about 2 or 3 weeks I am going to hatch 24 ducks, but I'm not sure what o should get, I would like to have a range maybe about 6 of 4 different kinds, but I don't really know any breed :( maybe some runner ducks, or calls ducks or something but I'm not sure,
    Any suggestions? :)

    Cayuga, swedish, appleyard, muscovy, welsh harlequin, rouen, just to name a few of my favorites :). Some come in different colors others don't.

    I personally love Cayuga's and Saxony ducks.

    My two Cayuga's have such funny personalities :)

    I had call ducks last year and as soon as they saw me they ran away, quaking, but when they were younger they are peas out of my hand :( I don't know why they were so scared, but a fox came and got them both a week ago, and I had been collecting her eggs she had just started to lay again I got 5 so I decided to put them in the incubator yestarday, so i will see if they hatch :) but after I want to hatch about 20 more of different types :)
