    I'm curious to see if I'm the only crazy one whos got bunches of ducks or not [​IMG]

    how many ducks does everyone have, what are thier namaes and what breeds are they?? [​IMG]

    I haaave:
    3 mallards

    4 call ducks

    and god help me, but for the life of me I can't remember Harvey and Tuts brothers name [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    2 Indian runners

    2 muscovies

    1 blue swedish

    3 pekins
    Big lenny who is crested(drake)
    Maude who is sorta crested, she has a few feathers on the side(hen)
    Boris(drake), who is standard

    1 cayuga
    annnd 1 mutt duck/i]


    and 2 african geese who don't have names [​IMG]

    I will soon be adding two new babies to my mix in a few weeks, our order from ideal ships the 25th, and I am getting a magpie and a crested mallard hen,who will need names.

    AND, still in the egg(mallard egg, though duckling may be mixed), if everything goes right, little Zeeka will hatch in early march! [​IMG]

    4 Mandarins (2 males and 2 females)
    *3 Cayugas ( 2 males and 1 female)
    *5 Blue or Black Swedish (2 males and 3 females)
    only the first 2 were named- a blue Swedish female Holly and a black Swedish male Buddy

    5 of their(*) kids (almost 1 now) ( I think 2 males and 3 females)
    the first 2 babies are Spitz and Leila (for how fast they hatched and what fighters they were while hatching.) My daughter has a few names for them like Buddy Jr, and Holly Jr, and Scooby, and it all gets confusing now b/c the babies and adults are starting to look alot alike.

    We are duck crazy too! I will be honest not many have names.

    Pekins 20
    Gray runners 15
    Muscovies (silver and black varieties) 16
    Pastel, Gray & White Calls 35

    This is my favorite duck, she is one of our black and white pied muscovies "Sweetie"

    So far, I have....

    5 Call Ducks
    a pair of splash named Bossy and Chewtoy
    a pair of blue and a khaki girl - these three have not gotten names yet.

    21 blue swedish ducklings - of whom I have 10 set aside to choose from to keep (I was thinking of keeping 8 of them, but might keep all ten). The ten I am keeping are - 3 splash 3 black and 4 blues.
    They are only a week old, no names yet either, but I am thinking the one splash drake simply HAS to be named Kronk [​IMG]

    Here is a phot of a pair of our gray runners. It is'nt the best photo and they are in their eclipes plummage. The duck is'nt standing up straight either, she is just a little bit shorter than the drake.
    But it gives you the general idea.
