    I hear the quack from the cayuga and for sure two of the Sweedish and possibly more but I have not figured it out for beyond a doubt. I hear the rasp from one of the blue Sweedish for sure. Yay duck eggs this spring!

    One of the black swedes and one of the blue, I am pretty sure I heard two of the black swedes quacking this morning but it was so noisy with them wanting Bfast. I will get some pics up soon. I have been busy with my new LGD pyrs but will get some pics of the ducks promise.

    I just fed them Bfast and I heard some quaking but still chirps in there too. I can't wait to know for sure how many ducks. If I have two drakes I most likely will just add more ducks to even things out.

    Quote:It sounds (the way you excplained it) that you have 4 hens, and two drakes. You wouls only need to add two more hens at the leased to even it out [​IMG]
